The addition of jalapeño to fruit salsa adds wonderful heat. Leave in more or less jalapeño seeds depending on your threshold. Test your jalapeño to make sure it has heat. Some chilies are totally mild with no heat. If it’s a hot chili and you don’t want too much heat, remove the seeds. Just make sure not to touch the seeds with your bare hands - their oils can irritate sensitive skin and eyes. You can make the salsa ahead. It also goes well with fish or steak. Serve this dish with a side salad.
