Piña Colada Salsa

  • 1 whole pineapple
  • 2 cups pineapple, diced
  • 1 cup orange peppers, diced
  • 1 cup plum tomatoes, diced
  • 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/3 cup onion, minced
  • Salt & white pepper, to taste
  • Juice of 1 fresh lime
  • Juice of 1 fresh lemon
  • 1/2 cup coconut, toasted
  • 1/2 jalapeno, diced

To make the pineapple bowl, cut about 1/3 of the pineapple off, leaving the stem attached to the larger piece of the pineapple. Make a cut around the outer edge of the pineapple fruit and make cuts across the middle too. Use a metal spoon to loosen and scoop out the pineapple chunks. Pour the extra juice out of the pineapple bowl so that it is empty. Dice enough of the pineapple chunks to make 2 cups of diced pineapple to be used for the salsa and save the rest for another use. In a small bowl, mix together diced pineapple, diced tomatoes, diced peppers, minced onions, chopped cilantro, lime juice, lemon juice, salt, white pepper and toasted coconut. Transfer the salsa to the pineapple bowl for serving. Store in refrigerator.
