MY REVIEW

This recipe is DEEELISH!!! It would also taste great on turkey burgers or in fish tacos. If you love cilantro then you'll love this recipe.

I made this for a family get together, and it wasn't for everybody, but the people that liked it could not get enough! My husband could eat the whole batch!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 16, 2011

So tasty and oh, so clever. I followed the recipe except for using just 1 jalapeno pepper. The only difficulty I had was in finely chopping the fresh pineapple. I did it by hand afraid to use the processor in case I turned it into juice.
