Sweet and smoky Grilled Pineapple Pear Salsa! The combination of grilled pineapple, pears, red bell peppers, red onions AND jalapeno is out of this world! Amazing alone or with chips, fish, chicken etc.
So I am kind of obsessed with pineapple. Sweet, tangy, fresh, juicy pineapple. And when its light enough and warm enough to go paddle boarding when Patrick get’s home from work without even a sweater, then I know its time for grilled pineapple.
This Grilled Pineapple Pear Salsa was inspired by my simple Grilled Pineapple Salsa that many of you might be familiar with due to one of my all time most popular recipes, my Grilled Chili Lime Chicken Tacos with Grilled Pineapple Salsa. That salsa is the perfect compliment to the bold chicken- it enlivens, brightens and adds a sweet and tangy punch to the boldly spiced chicken. So as I thought about the perfect compliment to my upcoming Teriyaki Chicken Tacos (out of this world!), I first dreamt of Asian Pear Slaw but still wanted to add pineapple because Teriyaki and pineapple just belong together (and like I said, I’m pineapple obsessed), so Grilled Pineapple Pear Salsa was born!
And with every bite I rejoiced in the caramelized pineapple, sweet tender-crips pear pairing!
I expected the Pineapple Pear Salsa to make me drool with every taco bite, but I didn’t expect to be so blown away by devouring it just plain. Mind blowing delicious. Although I shouldn’t have been that surprised because all the components are delish alone and even better grilled. almost everything is better grilled.
The pineapple and red onions caramelize– softening and sweetening, the pears soften and sweeten, the natural sweetness of the smoky red bell peppers comes alive and lastly the heat of the grilled jalapenos becomes infused with smokiness. In less than 15 minutes, everything becomes better grilled.
Dice everything up, toss with some freshly chopped cilantro, lime juice and a dash of ginger and cumin – add in some jalapeno seeds for more heat if desired…
And sweet and smoky Grilled Pineapple Pear Salsa is welcoming you to Grilling Season! Munch it alone or add it to your favorite chicken/fish, tacos, etc. and enjoy every sweet and spicy refreshingly delicious bite.
