How to make Pineapple Mango Salsa

Chopping is like therapy to me. But it has to be with a big ol’ Chef’s knife. The best way to cut these ingredients, especially the pineapple with its thick outer core is with a sharp knife.

Since the pineapple is the star of this dish I highly recommend you do not use canned pineapple. Using real fresh pineapple will make all the difference.
