Since old wives' tales suggest spicy food and fresh pineapple can help start labour I got the idea in my head to make a pineapple salsa. First off you should know I don't like spicy food, I'm allergic to coriander/cilantro and I've never made salsa in my life. Also I ran into the grocery with no phone signal so couldn't even look online for a sample recipe.
What I made I think actually turned out pretty well. She didn't get to try it (fingers crossed she's on her way to hospital now) but both Blondie Boy and I chowed down on some earlier.
Blondie's Pineapple Salsa
1 red onion (finely chopped)
1 fresh pineapple (cored & finely chopped)
1 bunch of fresh mint (again finely chopped)
zest & juice of one lime
1 red chilli (deseeded & finely chopped)
Mix, chill & serve with tortilla chips.
You could add more chillies if you like it hotter and sub out mint for coriander/cilantro but I really like the extra dimension it added to the salsa. You'll notice in my ingredients picture I have mango; I was going to add that in originally but opted not to do so.
Have you ever randomly thrown something together on a whim and found a new taste sensation? Am I silly to be proud of myself?
