Pineapple Mango Salsa Ingredients:
Mangoes: You can use any variety of mangoes to make this salsa, Just taste it once to check for sweetness before proceeding to make the salsa. It should neither be bland nor sour.
Pineapple: You can use fresh or canned pineapples in this salsa recipe. If you are using canned pineapple, please drain it by transferring over a colander (to get rid of all sugar syrup as otherwise the salsa can turn out too sweet).
Jalapeño: It adds heat to the salsa and balances the sweet flavour from mango & pineapples. If fresh jalapeños are not available, you can use pickled ones. You can it if making this salsa for kids.
Red Onion & Bell pepper: Both the vegetables add crunch and colour to the salsa. The sharp taste of onions along with mild sweetness of red bell peppers goes very well in this fruit salsa.
Lime Juice & Cilantro: The tanginess from lime juice & citrusy aroma from fresh cilantro instantly elevates the taste of this lip smacking mango pineapple salsa (If you are in India, you can coriander instead of cilantro).
Mango Salsa: Replace the pineapple with mangoes to make only mango salsa.
Strawberry Mango Salsa: The pineapple in this recipe can be swapped with some diced strawberries.
Mango Avocado Salsa: To make creamy salsa, you can skip adding pineapples and add once diced avocado to this salsa.
1. Keep the diced mango, pineapple pieces small & of even size so that you can enjoy their flavour in every bite.
2. You can enjoy this salsa straight away but chilling it in fridge for 20 to 30 minutes is better as it helps in amalgamation of flavours.

I would not recommend freezing it as the fruits become soggy & mushy after thawing. It is best to make and enjoy it fresh.
