Pineapple Salsa~Recipe Swap

This is my third month with the group recipe swap on facebook where a bunch of like minded food bloggers get together and team up in pairs to create a recipe from each others blogs. My partner for the month of May was Amber who blogs at Leggings 'n' Lattes, what an original name for a blog. Amber is a full time blogger and a stay at home mum with a young family. Her passion s to build a community to support women and inspire each other. That's a great outlook and I admire her for that.

Coming to the recipe post, I saw a few recipes that I short listed however since UK is having a rare heat wave we try and make the most of it by eating out doors as much as we can before the rainy weather returns. During these sunny days I always try to make easy recipes that we can eat out doors and those that pair up well with barbecues.

The pineapple salsa just screamed at me from Amber's blog, especially as this weekend we were celebrating my daughters birthday with a barbecue in the garden. The salsa was a super hit and I had to quickly make a second batch as the first batch got eaten in moments. The only addition I made to the salsa was that I added some cucumber,cherry tomato halves and used spring onions instead of red onion as they have a milder taste.
