Author Notes

So far, I've served this salsa with halibut, swordfish and tuna, but I suspect chicken and pork would also marry happily, or chips. It tastes better after the ingredients have spent some time together, so feel free to bring it along to a BBQ, a picnic or camping. —Cristina Sciarra

What You'll Need
  • 1 small red onion, minced
  • juice of one lime
  • ¼ pineapple, minced
  • 1 14-ounce can black beans
  • 1 large, ripe avocado
  • sea salt, pepper
  1. Mince the onion, and toss it into a large bowl. Juice the lime, and stir both juice and pulp into the onion.
  2. Separate ¼ of a pineapple, and mince. Rinse the beans. Add both the pineapple and the beans to the bowl.
  3. Dice the avocado, and add it to the bowl.
  4. Stir all the ingredients together. Add salt and pepper, to taste.

Hi! I made this recipe and we loved it! Especially my husband, who insisted on adding jalapeno and sweet red pepper; there are so many way to use this salsa. I know I will be making this again...thanks for sharing your recipe :)
