I’ve been back from vacation for over a week, and I’m still playing a bit of catch-up.  Yay that I caught up with my Bloglovin’ feed after a few days only to lose control of it again and play catch-up again.  What’s really hard to catch up on, however,  is having recipes “banked” or photographed for the future.  When I got back, I was plum out of them.  I like to have at least one week’s worth of material in “the bank” , especially for times when I’m lacking in creativity.  Do you ever have times where your inspiration has flown south and you don’t even know what you want to make for your blog family?  That’s happened to me recently, but  I bought a juicy pineapple, and luckily, that got the tropical juices flowing. 😉

I say it a lot — the simplest things in life are the best, and it’s 100% true.  This salsa hits all the notes — sweet, savory, fresh, and spicy.  It made me very happy with a cold beer and chips, and even happier when I topped my hot dog with it.  And some sriracha on top of that.  Oh, how I love the simple things.

If you’re looking for a little something that’s going to perk up the palate this summer, this is just the thing.  Dinner guests?  It’s your appetizer.  Tacos?  Top ’em with this salsa for a tropical twist.  You name it, and this salsa will add some spicy-sweet freshness to your food.  Isn’t this what summer’s all about?  Yes, yes, and double yes.  Fresh and fun with a kick. :)

    Oh my gosh Marcie – I sssooo know what you’re talking about!!! I have over 150 draft posts in my arsenal, but not all of them with pictures. For a long time, I thought – ‘oh, I’m good for at least 6 months’… then, when lack of inspiration struck, I realized I had no photos for all those drafts!!! UGH! Disaster. It’s like you scramble to the kitchen and try to make up for your slacking! At least that is how it was for me anyway. Ok, now onto this salsa… it looks absolutely fresh, amazing and perfect to go with the fish tacos I’m now dreaming about!!! Pinned!

      It’s so funny, I’ll bank the photos, but I rarely do drafts ahead of time. I feel like the pictures are the hardest part for me so I’m usually on top of those more. Yesterday was my big day in the kitchen because my son was home sick, and boy did I get a lot done. :) Thanks for the pin, Kristi, and I hope you have a happy hump day! :)

    What a wonderful salsa, Marcie! I love that you used pineapple for the main ingredient, sounds so perfect for this time of year! I’ve always wanted to make a fruit salsa, so now I think I have just the perfect recipe to do so. And I love your suggestion of topping tacos with this salsa, sounds amazing!

      Salsas are the best, and it’s so healthy that you don’t feel bad about eating or serving it! It’s a great way to get extra veggies and fruit, too. :) BTW, I’m waiting to hear back from a couple of people I’m nominating for the Writing Process Blog Tour, and I will get that post up! I never meant for it to take this long, but I guess better late than never. :)

    Aaw sorry you’ve been feeling that way..hehe I feel like that a lot these days and can never seem to catch up either. My problem is the opposite – I have the pictures and recipes but I can’t seem to find the energy/time to sort through and edit the photos or write the posts. This salsa would totally give me that motivation though :) Love that you made a pineapple salsa – I can just taste how fresh everything is. Pinning :) This looks amazing and I’m loving the sweet and spicy combo!

      Editing photos is the most time consuming part, isn’t it? The past two days have been very productive, thankfully, but you know that means ions of photos. haha I’m sure you must feel tapped with the little ones…it requires lots of energy. :) Thanks for the pin, Kelly, and I hope you have a lovely day!
