This is actually a recipe I created a few years a ago. I’ve been digging through old blogs, social media sites, and emails to gather twenty recipes I wrote for a small cookbook I am putting together (the intent is to make about 25 hand-bound books). I’m basically throwing it on here now as a way of saving it in a spot that is easier for me to get to. How self-serving. Super simple salsa and very tasty.
Cilantro Pineapple Salsa
A large bunch of fresh cilantro leaves (about 2 cups)
Olive oil (about a 1/4 cup)
Juice of one lime
Salt and pepper to taste
Healthy splash of pineapple juice (also to taste)
Throw the first three ingredients into a food processor and blend until the cilantro has been fully chopped and the consistency is liquid (i.e. not a paste but a liquid – if you need to add more olive oil go ahead.
Transfer the mixture to a bowl and add salt, pepper, and pineapple juice to taste.
Serve over warm or cold fish.*
*At this restaurant in town we discovered a cocktail of pineapple juice and champagne. It goes great with this salsa/fish dish. Fry up some plantains and you have a really great meal.
