Grilled Pineapple Mango Salsa

Grilling pineapple gives the fruit a lovely hint of smoke, while lime balances the sweet with sour citrus and jalapeño packs a spicy punch. Serve this summertime salsa atop your favorite bean burgers, salads, and tacos. This recipe came to us from Donna of Fab Frugal Food.

Ingredients

  • 1/2  ripe pineapple, peeled, cored and sliced 1-inch thick
  • 2-4 jalapeños
  • Olive oil, for grilling the pineapples and jalapeños
  • mango, peeled and diced
  • 1/4  Cup  minced red onion
  • scallions, sliced thinly
  • 3  Tablespoons  cilantro, chopped
  • 3  Tablespoons  lime juice
  • 2  Tablespoons  honey
  • 2  Tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2-3 dashes of hot sauce
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Preheat a gas grill or grill pan on medium-high heat.

Spray the pineapple and jalapeños with a little olive oil. Grill until the pineapples and jalapeños are charred slightly, about 2 minutes per side, then set aside to cool slightly. Dice the jalapeños and pineapple slices after they cool and place in a large bowl.

In a medium-sized bowl, stir together the mango, red onion, scallions, cilantro, lime juice, honey, and olive oil. Add the mango mixture to the charred, diced pineapples and jalapeños. Season with a few dashes of hot sauce and salt and pepper, to taste.

Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Bring to room temperature before serving.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
