THANKS HON!


My camera is still missing...but "Thanks Hon" using your camera will keep me blogging until I can find mine, or invest in a new one.  It's really different, but I will adjust. (HaHa)

Dinner tonight was an experiment that turned out very tasty!  I bought white albacore tuna burgers at Trader Joe's and tried them tonight.  The experiment was the pineapple salsa that is completely covering my burger on a lettuce leaf.  Added a baked sweet potato and we enjoyed a healthy tasty meal.

When I was at the Ladies workshop on appetizers last week, I was really impressed with the mango salsa.  I wanted to make it but didn't have a mango.  I did, however, have a couple cups of fresh pineapple and wanted a sweet salsa for my tuna burger.  So this is how I made it.

PINEAPPLE SALSA

2 Cups fresh pineapple chunks
1/3 Cup chopped red onion
1 chopped jalapeno chili (seeds and spine removed)
1/2 Cup chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Because I love fresh pineapple, I will use it instead of the mango in the future.

  1. I like pineapple but I love mango. This sounds good except for the cilantro. I am one of those people who is missing an enzyme and cilantro tastes like dish soap to me. Maybe with parsley. Or basil. Or tarragon. Oh, I will have to experiment.

    1. It's wonderful that we all have unique taste buds. People wonder why I don't like mint....but it's just a taste I can't acquire. But experimenting is the key to the kitchen.

  3. Looks so fresh and tasty! I am not a fan of cilantro either... but I love pineapple, and I truly love mango. I almost always have mango popsicles in my freezer.

    1. I think cilantro is a love/hate relationship...and I fell hard the first time I tasted it. Mango pops sound really good...Martha introduced us to vanilla ice cream with pure maple syrup- and crushed walnuts...that was good too,

  5. And I LOVE cilantro. Even just mixed with chopped tomato, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper, makes for a nice fresh side salad.

    1. Betsy, these albacore burgers were so good. They didn't have any breading or coating, so when I cooked them in a little olive oil, it was like having fresh albacore.

    1. It was very refreshing. Don's camera is not as easy to use as mine...small window to see what you are taking...but I'm thankful to have a back up.
