Black Bean and Pineapple Salsa

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by mensan98th

This is a basic chunky salsa recipe. I tried it with chopped scallions one day when I was out of fresh cilantro and was pleased with the result. It is *essential* to use fresh cilantro and jalapenos. If you don't have them, don't bother making it--seriously! Also, you can use crushed pineapple, but it makes the salsa quite watery. I recommend using tidbits instead.

My family loved this so much we have made it twice now. The second time I added more jalepenos (I like the bite with the sweet) and I used crushed pineapple. YUMMY

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove the seeds and membranes from the jalapenos before dicing if you prefer less heat. Leave them in if you prefer more.
  2. Rinse the cilantro well before chopping.
  3. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Letting it stand for a few hours will help combine the flavors, but is not an essential step.
