Pineapple Salsa made even more delicious by grilling the pineapple, red bell peppers, red onions AND jalapeno! Possibly the best sweet and smokey salsa E-V-E-R!
While we all love our Homemade Restaurant-Style Salsa and Salsa Verde, there is something magical about Pineapple Salsa – Grilled Pineapple Salsa! I have to admit, it wasn’t until last year that I started grilling. I somehow thought it would take some time to master and I was already very comfortable in my kitchen, but once I started grilling, I couldn’t stop! If you have never grilled before, it is SO easy and there is no clean up – that might be my favorite part if it wasn’t for the fact that practically everything tastes better grilled including this Grilled Pineapple Salsa.
And if everything tasted better with this Grilled Pineapple Salsa.
I have made pineapple salsa before (like in my first recipe every posted – my Hawaiian BBQ Taquitos – still one of my favs!) and even seen grilled pineapple salsa recipes before, but never have I seen a pineapple salsa that not only grills the pineapple, but the red bell peppers, red onions and jalapeno as well. Until now…
The pineapple caramelizes as it grills – softening, sweetening and transforming into the most healthy addictive fruit known to wo-man. The heat of the jalapenos is complimented by the grilled smokiness and the natural enhanced sweetness of the red bell peppers and onions that can only occur by grilling. Dice the pineapple, red bell peppers, onion and jalapeno and toss with 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 Salsa is begging for you to eat with your fingers, with chips, to top your favorite chicken/fish or adorn your Grilled Chili Lime Chicken Tacos that everyone won’t stop talking about (that recipe coming this week) along with Mexican Rice and/or Cilantro Lime Rice.
Grilled Pineapple Salsa. The one condiment that outshines the entree – every time. Perfect for grilling season. Perfect for summer. Perfect for a refreshingly delicious life.
