I’m very excited to be able to participate in this year’s wonderful blogging event, A Taste of Yellow hosted by winos and foodies. A Taste of Yellow is a blogging event supporting Livestrong Day, which is on May 13th this year. Livestrong Day, an event developed by the Lance Armstrong Foundation was created to to raise awareness and funds for the cancer fight.
As soon as I heard about Barbara’s a Taste of Yellow event, I knew I had to participate. My entry honors hubby’s recently deceased Grandfather; he passed away peacefully on March 25th, only 2 weeks after his diagnosis… Grandpa, we miss you!
Onto my dish for this event…I couldn’t decide whether to call this a salsa or salad. When I got to work in the kitchen I imagined a spicy savory sort of pineapple salsa. But I didn’t have cilantro or red onions. So I started to shift gears. I was in the mood for something sweet anyway, so a sweet pineapple salsa it’ll be!
And oh my goodness, I wish I had tried making this sooner because it was so delicious! I literally ate about half of it standing over the bowl in the kitchen as soon I finished making it. It was sweet with just the slightest bit of kick from the jalapeno… absolute pineapple heaven. I plan to make this a lot more in the future!
