Mayan Kitchen’s Caribbean Salsa Recipe

Few sensations are more pleasant than biting into a juicy piece of ripe pineapple.

Vibrant tropical flavors overtake the palate, while an unparalleled sweetness delights the senses. Tasting notes aside, a serving of pineapple fruit packs a healthy dose of vitamins and antioxidants, coming in at 88% daily value of vitamin C and 109% daily value of manganese. While it’s certainly a treat when eaten by itself, pineapple shines in a variety of dishes ranging from sweet to savory.

“The thing I like the most about this salsa is how the flavors blend together. You have the right amount of sweet, sour, and salt all in one bite. It’s a very refreshing and unique salsa, not to mention how healthy it is!”
