Spicy Heirloom Tomato and Pineapple Salsa

This heirloom tomato and pineapple salsa recipe is a great condiment for fish or chicken, but it’s also a great dip, too! The perfect summer condiment!

IT’S FRIDAY!  Let’s do a happy dance!  Oh, and let’s make up some heirloom tomato and pineapple salsa, too. Why? Because I like to live a spicy life!


Fridays here at It’s Yummi are ALWAYS special, but I’ve added a new weekly feature that will bring our Friday fun to a whole new level.  Are you ready to meet this week’s featured foodie?


Isn’t that a great name for a food blog?! The name is just as fun as the woman behind it. Look how adorable Katrin and her family are!


Katrin lives “uppa der” in the great white north, dontcha know… (that’s Canada for all of you who don’t understand the “Wisconsin-ese” I was speaking!)


One of the things that I love about Katrin is her passion for using local foods.  I’m all about keeping small businesses thriving, so I love that she goes to the farmers market and uses those great resources in her cooking and baking.

Here’s just one example of the beauty of her recipes.  She made her own hot dog buns….LOOK at this gorgeousness!


If you go over to her website to catch a glimpse of her most recent post, you may be in for a bit of a surprise. Yours truly was given the honor of guest posting for her this week! I was tickled silly that she asked me to help her out. I shared my recipe for pineapple and heirloom tomato salsa with her readers.
