Ingredients
  

For the Salsa

  • 1 fresh pineapple cut into 1/2 inch steak sized slices
  • 1 cup red bell pepper chopped (1 large)
  • 1/2 cup avocado chopped (1 medium)
  • 1/2 cup red onion diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh jalapeños or peppers of your choice diced (about 2) or to taste
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
  • Salt to taste

For the Crema

  • 15 oz Crema Mexicana (1 jar) or Sour Cream
  • 1 tbsp Zest of 2 limes

Instructions
 

For the Pineapple

  • Break down and slice the pineapple into 1/2 inch steak sized pieces, grill until starting to soften and color with grill marks. Remove when still tender-crisp. Cool the chop into medium dice.
  • Chop the rest of the salsa ingredients. A finer dice on the jalapeno and onion makes for a nicer texture.
  • Juice the limes, saving a final squeeze for plating. **ZEST the limes first, setting aside the zest for the crema. Save a final section of lime peel to zest at the very end when plating.
  • Combine the salsa ingredients with the lime juice, and a pinch of salt to taste.

For the Crema

  • Combine the crema with the lime zest.

Assembly

  • Serve in separate bowls, or on a serving platter by spreading the crema, then top with the salsa. Add a final zest and a squeeze of lime juice over the top.
    Serve with Wellington Crackers and enjoy!
