I don’t know about you, but fresh homemade salsas tend to cheer me up. It feels so good to make something so delicious and healthy without cooking anything. Not to mention all the vitamins and nutrients you get from raw fruits and vegetables!

This spicy tropical salsa, or pico de gallo, has all the flavors and is great all year round. It works great as a topping on anything you eat or as a snack for the family.

We love making this refreshing recipe on game days or before heading out to potlucks and barbecues.

It’s absolutely customizable. You can double any of your favorite ingredients and leave out anything you may not have on hand.

You can also make the salsa as chunky or as thin as you want by adjusting the size of the ingredients. Another option is to mix them all together to make a smoother sauce.

Ingredients and Substitutions

Labeled ingredients for habanero salsa.Labeled ingredients for habanero salsa.

Pineapple – Choose a ripe pineapple to cut yourself or buy it already diced at the grocery store. You can use canned pineapples, but they will be much softer than fresh pieces.

mango – A ripe or almost ripe mango adds the perfect level of sweetness. I like to select a mango that is not completely ripe so that it is not as mushy. However, a soft, ripe mango would be very tasty!

Habanero – These little orange peppers pack a very powerful punch. I suggest you start with 1 in the salsa and then add another if you want to make it spicier.

Bell pepper – A red pepper or any color of your choice adds delicious flavor and crunch to the salsa.

Onion -I like red onion here, but any type of onion will work.

Garlic – Use freshly minced garlic if you can. Otherwise, garlic powder can be used in a pinch.

Lime – The juice of a lime adds the perfect amount of liquid and tang.

Coriander – I love fresh cilantro in this dish but you can add parsley or another herb of your choice.

Salt pepper – Feel free to add more or less depending on your preferences.
