Pineapple Salsa

This was really, really, really good.  We served it with steak/veggie kabobs and Cajun shrimp.  

1 pineapple, diced
1/4 cup tequila
3 tbsp. lime juice
1 tsp brown sugar
Canola oil
1/2 red onion, diced
1 green jalapeno, diced
1 red jalapeno, diced
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 tbsp. EVOO
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Combine tequila, 1 tbsp lime juice and pineapple.  Allow to marinate for 30 minutes.  Drain then toss the pineapple with brown sugar.
Coat a saute pan with oil.  Cook pineapple, stirring frequently, until caramelized (5-8 minutes).  Remove from heat.  Combine with remaining lime juice and other ingredients.  Let it sit for 30 minutes.  

I will be honest.  I loved this!!  BUT..... I wanted a little crunch in it.  Billy suggested jicama.  I'm thinking Ramen noodles.  Tee hee.

Please comment below if you find the perfect crunch ingredient!!
