  • 1 lime

Instructions

  • Start by cleaning the pineapple and pepper. Chop half the pineapple and half the pepper into 1/4 inch pieces.

Notes

Pro Tips:

  1. A good mango should be firm but not rock hard, and definitely not mushy.
  2. Roma or plum tomatoes are better for this since they have more "meat".
  3. Cilantro is optional.
  4. You can double the mango and eliminate the pineapple.
  5. Do not use canned pineapple.
