My Little Red’s classroom was having a “Get to know your classmates” potluck. I know how important these events are to him. He’s also trying to impress a girl… 3rd grade times have changed, folks! I had to take something spectacular to his first classroom potluck of the year. Somewhere in the home goods section at Target, I decided on a Salsa de Piña, or Pineapple Salsa. It is Hispanic Heritage Month after all.
While on my Target run, I picked up a can of diced pineapple for my yummy pineapple salsa pero no muy picante. Piña is sweet and delicious, but they’re just kids. I didn’t want to make them something they couldn’t eat. At the potluck, I had the kids saying “piña.” Eñe is the one letter we have in español that makes us different. It was cute because now the kids think they speak Spanish. They know one word… LOL. and it also helped the kids get to know my redhead’s Latin culture.
I made two batches – one for the school and one for us at home. For my home version, I added some more jalapeno and a little more cilantro. With chips or on top of grilled fish tacos, my Salsa de Piña is imuy sabroso!
- 1 can diced pineapple, drained
- ½ jalapeno, finely diced (if using)
- ¼ red onion, finely diced
- ½ bunch of cilantro, chopped
- 1 large tomato, diced
- Mix all ingredients together. Taste for good measure.
