Trinidadians are famous for making a chow (salsa) out of almost any fruit – Plum Chow, Mango Chow, and now a recent favorite – Pineapple Chow.
Now I have to admit, even though Pineapple is my favorite fruit I was a little bit skeptical when I saw that it met its ultimate fate in the Trini palate as a Chow. But, as they say, don’t knock it until you’ve tried it, right?
So, I decided to make my own version, without the heavy dose of pepper sauce.
I was wowed! I couldn’t believe it tasted so good.
So, without further ado, here’s my super simple (and super mild) Pineapple Chow recipe.
1 cup chopped fresh pineapple
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 pimento pepper, seeded and minced
1 clove garlic, grated
– Add all ingredients to a small bowl
– Stir well to combine
– Serve and enjoy!
TIP: This salsa/chow could also work well as a topping to your favorite
