Dreaming of that vacation in the tropics? My tropical shrimp lettuce wraps with pineapple salsa will bring your taste buds there. Even if you can’t see those white sandy beaches and turquoise waters. Best of all, this recipe is ready in 20 minutes and is packed with Vitamin C to help boost your immune system and ward off the dreaded cold and flu season.
My pineapple salsa has a couple flavor boosting twists. The Tropicana Fresh pineapple is the key ingredient in this simple dip. Its vibrant, tropical flavor adds a sweet, but tart taste to the salsa. The sweet bell peppers add an extra dose of Vitamin C and a crunchy texture. Combine those unique ingredients with tomatoes, cilantro, onion, salt, pepper, and the juice from a Tropicana Fresh lime and you get one simple and delicious salsa.
