Pineapple, Mango and Sweet Peppers Salsa

pmps (2)This was the first time I ever made a Salsa, And what a perfect combo. I'm not a fan of raw tomatoes. In fact even cooked ones, I enjoy only if their shape is almost disappeared in the process of cooking. Cause the basic ingredient in Salsa is tomatoe, never ever gave it a try. But one evening after a tired day of work didn't have mood to cook anything big. I had this marinated Salmon in the fridge. So quickly came the thought that a Salsa would be a perfect match with this. Luckily I had Pineapple and not so ripe mango and the sweet peppers in all colors at hand to make this beautiful condiment. Whatelse can be a perfect dinner- The Healthy Seafood(Salmon) and fruits&vegies.

PMPS4 (2) This is my entry for "Power-less cooking Event"
I was just blog hopping and saw my fellow bloggers using stove for this event, but doesn't stove or oven take power too. In that case mine is a real real "Powerless " cooking dish, cause except knife I've not used any power items here.

bee said...

yeah, stoves consume power too, and many stoves are electric. love your dish.

KayKat said...

Salsas rock! Another twist you can try is to add a couple of tablespoons of red or white wine vinegar to it, kind of rounds off the flavors :)

Rina said...

Bee, thanks for being with me.

Kaykat, thanks for the idea of adding red wine and vinegar. I'm don't like the raw vinegar flavour but yeah, if we want the Salsa to have a little kick, definetly add the healthy red wine.
