Mango-Pineapple Salsa!

If you haven't tried the amazing blend of sweet fruits blended with the flavors traditionally used in salsas, you're in for a treat! Make this today...seriously, it's that good! Best part of this recipe is that you can go from zero to eating in about 10 minutes flat!

Here's what you will need to whip up your own batch of Mango-Pineapple Salsa...
* One large, ripe mango
* fresh, cored pineapple (you will use about half) I suppooooose, you could use canned pineapple, but you would never do that, right?)
* bunch of cilantro
* one small white onion
* one lime
* half of a large bell pepper, any color
* one fresh jalapeño pepper
* Jane's Krazy Salt
Use a vegetable peeler, and peel the mango...
Slice into long strips, and then dice in small dices...
Yep, that's it! Just like this...
Next, finely dice the cilantro. It's difficult to use and exact measurement, but maybe about 1/4-1/3 of a cup. Of course, you can add more if you like, and less if you like. Shoot, you could even skip it all together, but why on earth would you do that? You love cilantro, right? I've found that with most people it's a love or hate thing...we happen to love at mi casa!
Next, cut your peeled, cored pineapple in half. Set one half aside (delish with your breakfast tomorrow), and then chop the other half into chunks and then dice. I used my handy-dandy little chopper dealio for that.
Next take a fresh jalapeño, and cap both ends. Don't be afraid of these, they are really not that hot, especially these larger ones. I like medium heat when it comes to spices, and these are just fine, especially when mixed with the sweetness of the fruit.
Cut the pepper longways and open it up...
Remove the pith and seeds...
Dice the pepper and to suit your taste...
Now, this is the part where you add a small, finely chopped onion...
What? Say you can't see the picture? Yeah, well, I forgot that part. Use your imagination! I mean seriously, you Reaaalllly need to SEE me do that? Sad.
Ok, moving on...
Squeeze in the juice of one lime, and add the Krazy Salt...
Mix together with a wooden spoon and you will have this awesomeness...
Serve with some blue corn tortilla chips and dive in! ¡Fabuloso!

I buy my Jane's Krazy Salt at Ingles. It's a salt seasoning blend, and I use it in so many things! It doesn't have paprika like most seasoning salts, so you can use it in many more ways.
