Black Bean and Pineapple Salsa Lettuce Boats

Serves 8


  • 1 pineapple, peeled, cored and thinly diced (think pico de gallo size)
  • 1 red bell pepper, cored and thinly diced
  • 1/4 c thinly sliced cilantro
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp adobo chipotle sauce, from a can
  • 1 tbsp thinly sliced sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 15 oz can of black beans, prepared the way you like them - this is a good recipe!
  • 1 head of romaine hearts, washed
  • optional: if your pineapple isn't as sweet as you'd like, you can add a pinch of brown sugar into the salsa

  1. Prepare the black beans in a saucepan the way you like them.
  2. Combine and toss together the diced pineapple, red bell pepper, cilantro, apple cider vinegar, adobo chipotle sauce, sun-dried tomatoes and optional brown sugar in a medium bowl.
  3. Chop the romaine hearts into bite-sized boats, fill with black beans, and then top with pineapple salsa.
  4. Enjoy!
