The Best Type Of Fresh Herbs To Amplify Pineapple Salsa
Pineapple-based salsa should include plenty of herbs and vegetables to counter its sweetness, and while cilantro is a popular choice of herb, you can also think outside the box.
Other herbs that suit pineapple salsa include parsley, basil, and tarragon. Tarragon cuts through the syrupy sweetness of the pineapple so the salsa doesn't taste like dessert.
Parsley has a peppery and earthy profile that also balances the sweetness of the pineapple, and basil’s minty and earthy flavor can help the salsa be more well-rounded.
Spicy peppers, onions, and bell peppers also add a more classic salsa flavor to the fruit and herbs. Try these ingredients and you won't miss a classic tomato-based salsa at all.
