Fresh flavors is what it’s all about in the summer. This is my first summer to grow basil and I feel like an absolute green thumb wiz but let’s not talk about the other 5 herbs I planted….

Tossing together this pineapple salsa is a breeze and the flavor is just wonderful. Make plenty and save it for another night to add to your taco salad, baked chicken or grilled steak!

  1. I used orange roughy and Lane grilled it along side his marinated salmon concoction. Yes we had 2 completely different meals ha. We did share grilled veggies.

    My filet was quite large so I had leftovers for lunch. I put it on top of chopped cabbage and kept it cold. AMAZING!!

    Next time we have fish tacos I will make this and not be tempted by tortillas!

  2. whoa whoa whoa… what are the 5 other “herbs” hahahaha how did I miss that?
