"I used canned pineapple and canned jalapenos, and added a pinch of red pepper. I don't normally like cilantro but in this is adds flavor! :D VERY good everyone thought it was store bought and was surprised when i said I made it."

"I made this for the Cook's Corner ingredient challenge. I added your recipe to two packets of prepared Minute Multi-Grain Medley to make a rice salad. The salsa is outstanding. I used canned pineapple instead of fresh because I found one on the sale table. Thank you for the recipe!"

"Excellent tasting salsa. I personally like a little more heat I added 2 tablespoons of both minced ginger and fresh Tahitian lime juice."
