This festive recipe is a perfect compliment to chicken, fish, pork, eggs, or tacos! It delivers a crisp crunch from the peppers, a fresh taste from the cilantro, heat from the jalapeño, tanginess from the lime juice and a sweetness from the pineapple.

1/2-1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. ground coriander
1 small red, orange or yellow pepper, chopped
½ medium pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into dice
1 medium red onion, peeled and diced

2-3 tbsp. lime juice, or to taste
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
