Mint-Pineapple Pico de Gallo

We made this to go on top of Carnitas.  So awesome!!  I am a sucker for guac on everything but this was really tasty!!  Nice twist to your typical salsa!!
Recipe by Our Best Bites
1 small red onion, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno, minced (seeded, if desired, to reduce heat)
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
1 pound fresh pineapple, cut into small pieces (you can also use 1/2 pound mango, 1/2 pound pineapple)
Juice of 1 lime
kosher salt

Combine all ingredients except for the salt in a small mixing bowl. Season to taste with salt. If possible, allow to stand for 30 minutes at room temperature before serving. This will keep for 2-3 days in the refrigerator.
