Pineapple Salsa

Pineapple is definitely one of my all time favourite fruits & i love it even more having  recently discovered it tastes amazing made up into salsa as a side accompaniment to a main meal

What makes it even more amazing is that the sweet griddled pineapple makes it perfect to snack on & kill those late night sweet cravings & works perfect with the sharp lime & build up of heat from the chilli

So for my pineapple salsa you will need:

2x 500g bag of pineapple fingers
1x 100g tub of pomegranate seeds
Juice of one lime
A good handful of fresh mint leaves
1 red chilli de seeded
Salt & pepper to taste

•Start by dry frying the pinapple fingers in a griddle or frying pan. Don't add any oil, just let it colour golden brown. Set aside and leave to cool

•Chop the chilli and mint finely, place in a bowl. Add the lime juice and pomegranate seeds to the bowl. Add a pinch of salt and pepper, stir together.

•Add in the cooled pineapple, drizzle in a little olive oil, season to taste with salt & pepper, stir together till its all evenly mixed and serve. You can either serve it as an accompaniment to your main meal - it goes really well with chicken or fish, or just eat it on its own as a snack

You can leave the seeds in the chilli if you want it quite spicy, i de seeded it as my kids like it slightly milder
