Pineapple and Pork Tacos

We’ve all heard of porkchops and applesauce. I’m not exactly sure where this pop culture reference started (someone enlighten me?), but that sweet and savory combo is a classic. While I’m not planning on putting applesauce on a taco, I decided to work off that pork accompanied by fruit theme and make a fruity salsa to accompany spicy pork in a flour tortilla. It turned out to be a delicious combo that I’ve now made twice this week—it even made a great take to work meal! 

This isn’t a recipe where you’ll need exact measurements—just see what looks and tastes right, and work with you have on hand! You can use yellow or white onion instead of red, I just used red for the color. You could add in mango, jalapeño, go crazy!
