Fresh Pineapple Salsa

As far as flavor combinations go, sweet and spicy is my absolute favorite. Jalapeño margaritas? I’ll take two! I meant to post this recipe in time for all of your Cinco de Mayo celebrations but life has been so busy and full of change lately. I started a new full-time job, got married, and moved to a new house within two months! If I’ve been quiet on the blog lately, I hope these enormous occasions explain why. Hah! Luckily, this fresh pineapple salsa doesn’t go out of season anytime soon. It’ll add a burst of fresh flavor to your outdoor dinner table all summer long.

I discovered a new favorite food prep hack while testing this recipe. To de-seed a jalapeño, cut the pepper in half lengthwise and then use a melon baller to scoop out the seeds in one tidy swoop. It’s actually pretty satisfying! Removing the seeds from the jalapeños is an important step in this recipe because it keeps the salsa relatively mild. For a spicier pineapple salsa, keep some or all of the seeds.

What I love about this fresh pineapple salsa is that it gets better the longer it sits. The flavors marinate together and intensify as the salsa chills in the fridge, making it a great prep-ahead recipe. When you’re hosting a party or picnic, any work that can be done the night before saves time and stress the day of the event. Just drain off any juice that accumulates in the bottom of the bowl and give the pineapple salsa a quick stir before serving.

Have you ever added Tajin to the rim of your margarita glass? It’s an incredibly tasty seasoning blend made with mild chile peppers, lime, and salt. I added a sprinkle of Tajin to this pineapple salsa and it amped up the flavors in the best possible way. I highly recommend it if you can get your hands on some!

This easy recipe for Baked Loaded Potato Wedges will blow you away with the delicious combo of crispy baked potatoes,  tofu bacon bits, and a creamy vegan cashew cheese sauce.

While you could eat these loaded potato wedges as a meal or side dish, I love serving these as a shared appetizer or a Game Day snack. Having a few is delicious, but having a whole sheet pan on your own is quite gluttonous so you might want to share. If you’re hosting a party, a movie night or a game day get-together, make sure to put these delicious loaded potato wedges on the menu and you will be everyone’s favorite!

These Vegan Cheesy Potato Wedges are perfect for when you’re craving something cheesy and comforting. The potatoes are baked not fried.  They are baked on the same sheet pan as the tofu bacon which makes for easy clean-up. While the potato wedges are baking, we whip up my favorite vegan cashew cheese sauce. It only takes minutes and you’ll love the creamy rich texture. I like to make some extra and serve pasta with vegan cheese sauce and bacon the next day. You can also slice the potatoes into halves to make loaded baked potatoes!
