This colorful, fiery salsa is a great partner for baked chips. However, it is also a great compliment for grilled pork tenderloin, ham/gammon steaks, grilled tuna, salmon, and snapper. One jalapeño chile, with the seeds and ribs included, makes the salsa plenty hot, but add more if you like.
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tbsp packed light brown sugar
1/2 tsp kosher or sea salt
1/2 pineapple, peeled, halved lengthwise, cored, and cut into 1/4-in./6mm dice
1 small red bell pepper/capsicum, seeded, deribbed, and cut into 1/4-in./mm dice
2 green/spring onions, including green tops, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
1 jalapeño chile, including seeds and ribs, minced
1 tsp chopped fresh thyme leaves

1. In a large bowl, whisk together the lime juice, brown sugar, and salt until the salt dissolves.
2. Add the pineapple, bell pepper/capsicum, green/spring onions, jalapeno, and thyme, and gently mix to coat with the dressing. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Transfer to a serving bowl, cover, and set aside for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to meld.
