WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - The two recipes Chef Chris Manning introduces us to pair extremely well.

The Hawaiian Spice Rub is traditionally used with chicken or pork, but it’s also great for ahi tuna and shrimp. It will keep for two to three weeks in a cool, dark place.

The Pineapple-Cucumber Salsa is a blast of summer flavors. It will keep for two or three days in the refrigerator.

- ¼ cup chili powder

Pulse all ingredients together in a food processor until well blended.

Use as a rub for chicken or pork.
