I'm sure when you think of salsa you think of traditional tomato salsa that is spicy. For those of us who can't handle spicy food sweet salsa made with Summer riped fruit is a more comfortable option! Adding in some heat with jalapeno pepper adds a nice balance between sweet and spicy.
Fruit salsa can be used as an appetizer but works really well as a side dish with your favorite protein. Shrimp is my favorite protein. I could probably eat shrimp daily but don't of course. Kiwi pineapple fruit salsa is perfect served on shrimp. This salsa also would work well with chicken, pork, and other seafood such as salmon.
