Today I want to share with you a recipe for a gluten-free pineapple apple salad. It’s so good… and of course it’s naturally gluten-free and always good for you!
The reason I was keen on making this delicious, gluten-free and sweet salad is because I purchased a new pineapple corer.* This thing is amazing! It allows you to remove the entire insides of a pineapple while keeping the pineapple skin intact. This means you can use the pineapple skin as your serving bowl! The pineapple corer* also removes the core so you get the most pineapple flesh possible with little waste. So awesome!
Just look how pretty this serving bowl turned out!
This recipe requires no cooking, baking or anything that involves heating up your home on a hot summer day. You simply chop everything, mesh it all together, and serve it up. Your guests will go ga-ga for this – and they’ll be impressed with your mad pineapple coring skills too!
When picking the best apple for this salad, I suggest a sweet, red apple. I was at King Soopers earlier this week and the guy working the produce area told me to try the Koru apple. The Koru apple is a cross between a Fuji and Braeburn apple. He sliced one open for me (and my family) to try. We loved it so much and bought a bag full of them on the spot. It has the perfect crunch and sweet ratio. I knew it would be delicious in this gluten-free salsa recipe. Other apples that work well are Fuji, Braeburn and Honeycrisp apples as they are all crispy and sweet too.
I served this pineapple apple salsa as a taco topper and dip for Mexican night. It was a BIG hit! Enjoy!
