Black Bean and Pineapple Salsa

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

I found today’s recipe for Black Bean and Pineapple Salsa from a magazine that my kids get called The Friend.  They have a little section in there with recipes for kids to make.  So feel free to bring the kids in the kitchen on this one.  Basically as long as you can open a can, you can make this recipe.

The recipe is very similar to a recipe that I have posted before called Black Bean and Corn Salsa which is also known as Cowboy Caviar.  I gave this salsa about an hour to sit in the fridge and it was delicious.  However, most of the time these kind of salsas only get better the longer you can let them sit and let the flavors marinade.  The pineapple added a nice element of sweetness.  I found it similar in flavor to a mango salsa i have had in Mexican restaurants.  Yummy and easy – who could ask for anything more?  This is a fun side to any Mexican dish.  I served it with Barbecue Chicken Quesadillas.

  11. I made this today- waiting for it to chill and then I’m diving in!!
    P.S. did you drain your tomatoes? I did but not sure that’s the “right” thing to do.

  19. This fresh idea sounds wonderful and quick. May I share one I have used often. I use a large container of mango salsa from the refrig dep in your store adding the corn and beans and pineapple and 3 tablespoons of cider vinegar to make a very large amount. This freezes well.
    My favorite is to poach,bake or microwave salmon steaks and submerge it in the salsa for 24 hours and serve cold over salad or hot over a rice dish. This is a very quick and eye stopping main dish if you are in a hurry to show off. Because of the vinegar this is a pickled dish and will last for 2 weeks in the frig. and can be served in moments.
