Pineapple Confetti Salsa Served In A Pineapple

Got a pineapple? It's party time with pineapple confetti salsa served in a scooped out pineapple!!

This interesting salsa goes great with (gluten-free) chips, mixed with cooked rice, or as a topping for grilled tofu. 

Doesn't it look pretty and perfect for holiday entertaining ? Whether for Easter or for Passover, your guests will love it! 

I love it because it's full of healthy ingredients such as enzymes for digestion, antioxidants for immune boosting, and valuable vitamins.  

Fruit, Golden, Healthy Food, Pineapple

I very seldom buy a whole pineapple because I find it difficult to cut and serve. But this wasn't too unmanageable. I simply cut the pineapple in half lengthwise and then used a paring knife to cut around the edges before I scooped out the pulp. The empty pineapple became a serving piece.

Pineapple, Sweetness, Yummy, Dessert

This delicious pineapple salsa is a simple recipe calling for a variety of fresh vegetables such as chopped tomatoes, chopped red onion, diced orange or yellow bell pepper, chopped cilantro (or parsley), some optional fresh lime juice and optional jalapeño peppers. Of course, don't forget the diced pineapple.

Tomatoes, Red, Vegetable, Healthy

I like to make this salsa mixture and then combine it with cooked brown rice for a tasty vegan side dish. Traditionally this type of salsa is eaten with fish - such as salmon.

Red, Pepper, Yellow, Orange, Bell

1 large pineapple
2 cups of pineapple, diced small
2 medium tomatoes, diced small
1 cup of diced yellow or orange bell pepper, diced small
1 cup of diced red onion
1/2 cup of chopped cilantro or parsley
Optional: 1/4 cup of diced jalapeño peppers 
Fresh lime juice if desired (I didn't)
Cut a pineapple lengthwise and cut out the pineapple pulp leaving the pineapple shell for serving.  
Assemble all of the ingredients in a bowl. Toss well and allow to sit for at least 15 minutes. Stuff the pineapple before serving, draining any liquid if necessary. 

My friend Noreen made this pineapple salsa at a dinner party at her house. 


  1. My husband would devour this salsa. He loves sweet juicy pineapple.

  2. I love the flavor combination of pineapple with all the other salsa ingredients. As you say, this salsa often appears with fish. It’s been quite a while since I’ve eaten it.

  3. That's a beauiful creation and I know delicious!

  4. This looks so fresh and delicious!

  5. Mmmm.... sweet & spicy: my favorite flavor combination! This looks delicious!

  6. I also never buy a whole pineapple. Mainly because I too am too lazy to cut it. And also because I'm the only one who eats pineapple in our house.

  7. I like pineapple a lot! My husband isn't as keen, especially in a savoury dish. We did make a pineapple and chilli which was delicious a while ago! When we were in New Zealand we saw a cafe where they served up toasted cheese and pineapple sandwiches which was surprising. We didn't try it though!

  8. Such a cute idea! I'm going to have to make this for my book club next month!! Thanks for the inspiration.

  9. It looks beautiful and delicious!.......Abrazotes, Marcela

  10. Party time indeed! Pineapples are my favorite fruit, so I absolutely love this! The pictures, as always, are beautiful too, so fun and festive! 🍍🍍🍍💖

  11. Beautiful, delicious and healthy. You can't get better than that.

  12. I love the flavors of your pineapple salsa, the jalapeño and red onion add the perfect amount of heat and savory flavor. But your idea to serve it right in the pineapple is really extra fabulous!

  13. This is so pretty! what a great summer party appetizer!

  14. This is a great party idea! Healthy, beautiful and delicious. Love it!

  15. It looks so pretty and enticing!

    Hugs and blessings, Judee.

  16. I love a good confetti salad, particularly when it is served up so beautifully as you have done here. I think I would definitely go for the cilantro. I am one of those people who really likes it.

  17. That looks soooo pretty. Yes to cilantro in this house!

  18. How festive, colorful and tasty. What a beautiful presentation as well.

  19. Judee, I was linking up my quiche to weekend cooking and saw you linked. Forgot to mention to you we had a nice sweet potato and spinach dish recently and I thought about you. It's vegan and I think you'd like it. Here's the link if you want to take a look:


  20. We both enjoy pineapple, but my husband is absolutely crazy about it. Luckily, we have a ton of it starting to come into season, none ripe quite yet, but this recipe will be a perfect use for some of the fruit!

  21. It does look very pretty: the salsa and the presentation bowl.

  22. Ah-mazing salsa recipe and I love the presentation! Thanks so much for sharing to SSPS #256, hope to see you again next week
