Pineapple Mango Salsa

I have always wanted to try a salsa like this.   Its the combination of sweet fruit with the spark of an onion and cilantro, add the lime juice and it just sounded yummy.  

The hubby grilled some pork chops and I made the salsa as a topping of sorts.  I loved it.  He liked them separate and even had some alternative ideas to use the salsa with - with some kind of chip or cracker.  Then I thought, those butter crackers, spread with cream cheese and topped with the salsa - would make an excellent appetizer. 
My mouth is already watering.   Yummy. 

Here is my version:

2 c diced fresh pineapple.
2 mangos, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced fine
3 scallions, diced
2 T fresh cilantro, chopped
2 limes, juiced
pinch of kosher salt


Mix together all the ingredients in a small bowl.  Cover and refrigerate for an hour or so, to allow flavors to blend.  (Now, last night, I did use this within 30 minutes and it was still really good). 

Serve with tortilla chips, on crackers spread with cream cheese or a topping to any grilled pork, fish or chicken.  Its just good.
