Pineapple Salsa

My favourite fruit is here. Yay!! It's raining pineapples in the market and obviously it's bound to find its way to my kitchen. I adore pineapples. Yes, all you mango-lovers, I would any day choose pineapples over mangoes. More so since this is the first Monsoon in 3 years that I'll actually be able to savour those delicious citrus bites without worrying about how to peel a pineapple without getting your fingers cut.
The last two years, pineapple-wise, have been quite a tragedy for me. I was in Delhi, living right next to my office in this really upmarket locality which undoubtedly is the fruit-hub of South Delhi. They had amazing supplies of the best peaches, kiwis, cherries, melons, black grapes amongst all the other usual stuff. I would bare my pockets every 2-3 days and bring home a humongous quantity of fruits. But despite being my all-time favourite, pineapple was one thing I was always wary about. Never could I manage the art of peeling the damned thing without hurting my fingers in the process.
But now, as you know, I am home. And home is where the heart pineapple is. So without much ado let me jump straight into my first exploit with this season's pineapples. A simple Pineapple Salsa. It's fresh and crunchy, full of that citrus-y burst of flavour in every bite. You can have it as a salad, you can have it as a side, or you can just have this and nothing else at all. Weight watchers, you're going to love this!
