Pineapple mango salsa

Sorry!  I've been in a bit of a bloggin slump...we've been really busy lately.  For Valentine's day, we went to Vegas.  We saw Cirque de Solei "Love" at the Mirage...it was amazing.  I also happened to see that crazy Michelle from The Bachelor.  We then had some visitors from Utah followed by some friends from Vail (who we happened to rescue from the airport on their way to get married in Mexico.) We've been busy, busy.  I did manage to do some cooking this weekend & made some really good stuff.

My hubby & I really enjoy Mahi-Mahi, especially when we blacken it.  He managed the grilling side of dinner while I made this awesome salsa to accompany the tacos we decided to make with the fish.  This salsa is best when everything is diced really small.

{Pineapple Mango Salsa}
recipe compliments of The Pioneer Woman

1 whole pineapple; peeled & diced
1 mango; peeled & diced
1/2 red onion; finely diced
1 jalapeno; seeded & diced
Fresh cilanto; chopped
Juice of 1 lime
Dash of kosher salt
Dash of granulated sugar (optional)

Combine pineapple, mango, onion, jalapeno & cilantro.  Add the lime juice, salt & sugar.   Chill for 1 hour. 

The salsa had such great flavor we didn't even need cheese on our tacos...just some cabbage & a little extra cilantro.  It felt like summer!
