Fresh Pineapple Salsa

This is one of my favorite things to make in the summer. It has the perfect mix of sweet and savory. We usually eat it with tortilla chips (the hint of lime ones are really good), but I think it would be good with grilled chicken or fish, too. As with most fresh salsas like this, it's best the first day or so after you make it, then it just gets sort of watery, although still yummy.

Fresh Pineapple Salsa

2 plum tomatoes
1/2 small red onion
1 4-in. piece seedless cucumber
1/2 cup lightly packed cilantro leaves
1 jalapeno pepper
1/2 medium pineapple
1 lime
1/2 tsp salt
Tortilla chips

Hull and remove seeds from tomatoes. Dice tomatoes, onion and cucumber. Chop cilantro. Combine tomatoes, onion, cucumber and cilantro in a large bowl. Remove seeds from jalapeno pepper and chop finely. Add to bowl. Core and peel the pineapple, then chop and add to the bowl. Juice the lime and add to the bowl along with the salt. Mix thoroughly until combined. Serve with tortilla chips.
