Crab Pineapple Salsa is a fresh, summery scoopable dip that’s both sweet and savory. It’s perfect for grilling out, packing in a picnic basket for a day at the beach, or simply for snacking.

It’s not a burger.
It’s Crab Pineapple Salsa.
It’s not your typical salsa…and it’s so damn good.

Food never needs a reason to be made.
