Buying a whole pineapple is not an unnecessary challenge if you have a plan for it. When you cut up a pineapple you will have at least 3 cups of cubed pineapple. Plan for a variety of uses. Keep some fresh for an after dinner treat or fruit salad and use the rest to add to a main meal. This is such a refreshing summer dish and easy to toss together. Serve with grilled chicken, pork, or tuna. Yields 4 servings.

2 tablespoons minced red onion
1 tablespoon minced seeded jalapeno pepper
1 ½ teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
1 ½ teaspoons fresh lime juice
dash of salt

Combine all ingredients, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
