Pineapple-Habanero Salsa

Cuisinart original

Salsas are very dependent on flavorful ingredients, and pineapples can be very sweet or not so sweet.
Habanero chiles can be quite hot, so go light at first. Adjust seasoning after letting the salsa sit for a little bit and drain it if it produces too much liquid while processing.


about 1½ cups


1 small garlic clove, peeled
¼ habanero chile, seeded and quartered
(or substitute ½ jalapeño)
1 scallion, cut into ½-inch pieces
1 tablespoon packed cilantro leaves
1 cup grape tomatoes
²/³ cup pineapple, cut into 1-inch pieces
½ teaspoon kosher salt
Pinch freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
