Pineapple Black Bean Salsa: 3ten.ca

Pineapple and black bean salsa. My corn salsa is so good, yet this is a great twist. I made it a couple of weeks ago for a potluck – luau themed! Hence, the pineapple.

This recipe is fresh, light, and super flavourful. Eat it on fish tacos, on chicken, or with chips.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 a pineapple
  • 2 cup of black beans
  • handful of cilantro
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • limes

First, gather all of your ingredients.

Juice your limes – you’ll need about 1/4-1/2 cup of lime juice depending on your taste.

Time for the pineapple. Cut it in half, lengthwise. Core out the middle and save the pineapple to make a pineapple boat.

Dice the red onion and put in a bowl with the chopped garlic. Top with the lime juice (just add 1/4 cup to start). While that sits, dice up the pineapple you cored out. Don’t use the core, just the meaty fruit part. Add the pineapple and the black beans to the bowl.

Stir in the chopped cilantro and you’re all set. Taste and add more lime juice if you wish.
