For a great start to summer snacks, pineapple salsa is the way to go. It’s a great topper for salads, burgers and fish, and is also delicious with any chip. My favorite pairing with this salsa is margarita lime tortilla chips — with just the right amount of sweet and salty with a little bit of bite. Enjoy!
