Pineapple Avacado Salsa

You may start to see a theme right now in the recipes that I am posting.  That theme would be SPRING!!!  It is time for every last bit of snow to be gone and the outdoors to be nice and warm.  I want to sit on my patio with a glass of wine while my food is cooking on the grill.  I have started to hear birds chirping in the morning, so I feel like we are on the right path, but temps in the 30's (even if it is just first thing in the morning) have to go!


This was a fun recipe to make, that I am certain to make again this spring/summer.  The combo of creamy avocado, sweet pineapple, fresh lime juice and heat from the jalapeno makes winning combo that goes great over seasoned grilled chicken breast.  When I make this again, I want to see what else I could do with it - like turn it with some spinach and queso fresco for a nice salad, or maybe over grilled fish or maybe serve just as a stand alone salsa.  Can you tell that I like this salsa?!  


I don't have any pics because I was feeding a very hungry bunch of people and the food disappeared quickly.  I WILL be making this again and WILL take pictures to share.  SO GOOD!!!
