I am making this "salsa" to be served in a half of a pineapple for my son's birthday party, being thrown by his gf on Saturday night. I intend to attempt a guacamole for the other half of the pineapple.

Pineapple, Mango & Avocado Salsa Recipe | Gimme Some Oven

My question is: what do I put to dip into this pineapple stuff? Chips? Bread? Cookies? I'm at a loss.

My biggest success with this type of thing is what I call bruschetta. It's more like a salsa, actually, consisting of diced tomatoes, onions, fresh garlic, jalapenos, fresh basil, served with thinly sliced seasoned and toasted
French bread baguettes. I intend to make that also.

But what do I put out with the pineapple-mango-avocado stuff??

Tortilla chips would be the most "commonly acceptable" venue for salsa of any type.

Definitely tortilla chips. It could also be used to top fish or shrimp tacos.

I'd do some good, high quality chips and make sure the dice on the veg is smaller than the picture. Id imagine with chips it would be hard to scoop up if the chunks were as big as in the photo.

A plain pita chip or plain flavored cracker would let the flavor of the dip shine through. sounds delicious.

How bout several different options for your guests.

Also not mentioned there are some really tasty veggie chips out there which would go good with that salsa.

I'm jelly, maybe a party crash is in order.

I'd go with the tortilla chips - preferably the Tostitos Scoops to get all that good stuff out!

Yes, tortilla chips of course. And I second chopping everything finer to fit on the chips. Sounds great, I would add some Adobo seasoning if you had any.

Thanks for all the suggestions! Thought I'd share how it came out. I did end up getting tortilla chips, blue ones and regular ones. It seemed to be a hit!
