Prep Time 10 minutes
Servings 8


  • 1 pineapple diced or 2 mangos, diced
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ red onion chopped
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 jalapeno diced


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine pineapple or mangos, parsley, olive oil, onion, lime juice, and the jalapeno and stir together gently.
  • Chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
  • Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 2 days.


  • Ripe pineapples should be a bright yellow (not green) and smell fragrant! I also like to cut out the core and discard it rather than add it to my salsa— it’s a bit woody and can add a strange crunch.
  • Ripe mangoes are slightly soft to the touch and should be a bright red or yellow (again, not green)— they should have a similar feel to a ripe avocado!
