Pineapple-Pepper Salsa

I made this one up when I needed salsa for some fish tacos.  I didn't have really any of the traditional salsa fare laying around, so I had to improvise with what I had.  I served it not only with fish tacos but also with homemade corn tortillas and eggs for breakfast.

1 4-oz can pineapple chunks (in pineapple juice) - chop into smaller pieces and drain the juice
1-2 small fresh red chillies (seeded and chopped) or 1/4 tsp chili powder)
2 green onions and 2-3 chives chopped up
1/4 of a cup red bell pepper or roasted red bell pepper (both versions are good)
Zest of one lemon
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
optional additions: artichoke hearts, a pinch of garlic powder, cumin or cilantro (all are really good depending on your taste and ingredients)

Stir everything up and...if you can stand the temptation...put it in the fridge for about 30 min to let the flavors meld.

This makes about 2 servings  :)
