To celebrate the launch of our Pineapple App, the platform that allows men and women TTC to connect wherever they are in the world, we turned to Sue Bedford MSc Nutritional Therapist, and asked her if she could give us a pineapple themed dish that we could make over the weekend, especially now that the sun seems to have arrived!
(For those of you wondering why so many people in the TTC community keep referring to Pineapples, check out this article by Jodie Nicholson).
So here it is, Sue’s ‘nutritious and delicious’ Pineapple Salsa – perfect with a bbq, fish, chicken, or alongside a Mexican dish!
1 pineapple peeled, cored and chopped into small chunks
2 fresh chillies (your choice of colour)
a bunch of fresh coriander or fresh mint- either go well with this recipe
1 small red onion
juice of 2 limes
Pinch of sea salt and black pepper
How to make your pineapple salsa
Cut the pineapple, peppers, and red onion into tiny cubes, attempting to keep them all the same size if possible.
Chop the chillies and coriander (or mint) after that.
Combine all of the chopped ingredients in a big mixing bowl, add the lime juice, and season to taste with sea salt and black pepper.
Until serving, cover and chill for at least 30 minutes.
Did you know?
A pineapple is a fruit made up of several berries that have grown together, rather than a pine or an apple. This also means that pineapples are a set of berries that have fused together rather than a single fruit.
Pineapples are naturally high in fibre, which is an essential part of a balanced diet and can aid digestion. Pineapples are also rich in manganese, calcium, vitamins A and C, and folate, as well as other vitamins and minerals important to health and fertility.
If you do make this pineapple salsa, will you take a photo and send it to us? The first 10 pictures we receive will be awarded with one of our pineapple pins! Send your pictures over to email@example.com. (Let us know if you are happy to share your pineapple salsa pics!)
