1 large tomato seeded and diced
1 cup diced pineapple
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon minced habanero chile or 1 tablespoon habanero pepper sauce
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, including salt to taste. Mix well and refrigerate for 15 minutes to allow the flavors to blend before serving.
