Pineapple Salsa

I am allergic to pineapple, well I thought I was. A few years ago I took a bite of pineapple and my tongue swelled up and got all tingly. I love pineapple so I was devastated. I have tried to eat it numerous times since then and the same thing happens. Last month, Josh bought a fresh pineapple for a party we were hosting. While he was cutting it up, I snuck a piece. Nothing happened. So I had another piece and another piece. Nothing. I wonder if pregnancy cured my allergic reaction to pineapple? I don’t know why I can eat pineapple now, but I am certainly glad I can. This week I bought a fresh pineapple and made pineapple salsa to go with our dinner.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups diced fresh pineapple
  • 1 cup diced red pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped jalapeno pepper, stemmed and seeded
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Juice of 1 large lime
  • Salt, to taste
