Ok so it’s FINALLY Friday and about 75 degrees out for the first time since last fall so I wanted to make something fresh and light for dinner.  I found this amazing pineapple salsa in my Pampered Chef cookbook and modified it a bit to give a sweet flavor.  I had everything on hand already so it’s the perfect addition to the carribean jerk chicken I’m making tonight!  My boyfriend doesn’t like fish, but I strongly suggest you pair this with grilled tilapia or salmon as this would be amazing on top.  One serving of this is only 70 calories with 0 grams of fat and you get about 6 servings out of this salsa.  I hope you really enjoy it!  Your friends will love you for bringing this to your next cookout, don’t forget the Corona’s and lime!
