Pineapple-Cherry Salsa

June 2010 288

Are cherries still around? I hope so. I made this salsa last month at the height of cherry season, but I think you can still easily find cherries in the supermarket. Here’s a salsa with a sweet accent but one that’s also got a sassy attitude from the bits of jalapeno mixed throughout. Try this over a grilled piece of salmon, chicken, or pork or serve with tortilla chips for a little something out of the ordinary.

I love sweet/hot salsa served over grilled salmon or pork!

This sounds like a wonderful variation, Linda, as I am tired of mango slasa.

Hope you are staying cool this unusually hot and humid summer!

Sweet cherries and a little heat - is that summer or what? And cherries are still around in MN. I think I will just have a bowl of it. Who needs meat or tortilla chips?

Oh I love this and most all salsa's. The taste is divine and the colors make me wonder how Van Gogh would have interpreted this dish.
