Food For Thought: Sweet ‘n Sour Pineapple Salsa

I hope you’re enjoying all the frozen desserts and other summer treats my guests and I have been sharing.  Today we have a slight change of pace with a delicious Sweet ‘n Sour Pineapple Salsa from Mary-Kate at Christianity Cove.

This tasty snack uses the concept of sweet and sour as a reminder that people we love have good and bad moments. And while our relationships can hit some sour notes, the overall effect is definitely sweet!



• One cup fresh pineapple finely chopped

• One medium diced red bell pepper

• One small Jalapeno pepper finely chopped

• l/2 minced green onion

• Two tablespoons lime juice

• Salt and pepper

• Nachos or corn chips

• Large bowl and mixing spoon

• Pretty platter – paper or plastic


Nobody’s perfect. What are some things a person you love does that are

not perfect? They might get short tempered, forget appointments, don’t

always give enough attention, burn dinner, etc.

The thing to remember is that nobody is perfect. There’s “sour” in this sweet and sour salsa we’re about to make and enjoy. The salsa is a little like our relationships – there’s a little bit of “sour” in them, but overall it’s very sweet!
