Pineapple and Black Bean Salsa

Sweet pineapple is tossed with spicy jalapeño peppers, black beans, red onion, cilantro and lime for a quick and refreshing salsa!

We had some friends over for a Mexican-inspired dinner party, and I wanted to do a mix of recipes I had made before and a few new ones. I needed a quick and easy appetizer, and this pineapple and black bean salsa sure fit the bill!

Pineapple and Black Bean Salsa

I made the salsa early in the day and put it in the refrigerator to let the flavors meld until dinnertime. It was absolutely delicious! It’s sweet and spicy and refreshing. It was a big hit with our dinner guests, too.

In fact, it was so tasty that I made another batch a few days later and served it over the leftover pork from our Pork Asada Tacos with Tomatillo Salsa Verde. Delicious!
