Grilled Pineapple Salsa

Yes, visit this site another grilled salsa recipe. You have a problem with that? I didn’t think so…

Last week, buy my dad and I planned out dinner for some guests. We wanted something nice, but not too complicated – tt was a weeknight, after all. In the end we settled on grilled salmon because it’s kind of fancy, healthy and easy to make. My favorite salmon marinade is really simple – 2 parts olive oil, 1 part soy sauce and 1 part Dijon mustard. Just mix it up, pour it over your salmon and let it sit for as long as you’d like. Toss everything onto the grill (on some foil) or under the broiler for 15 minutes. It’s always delicious.

This time, we wanted to top it off with something a little more festive and I decided on grilled pineapple salsa. I charred some pineapple pieces on the grill, then tossed them with red onion, jalapeno peppers, cilantro and lime juice. The grilled pineapple was caramelized and sweet with a little of that BBQ char flavor, the onions and lime juice countered the sugar with some bite and the jalapenos added just the right amount of heat.

I loved the salsa on salmon, but also can’t wait to try it on grilled pork tenderloins, chicken and pretty much anything else. My dad tells me it’s one of the best things I’ve ever made for him. We ate the leftovers with some whole grain tortillas and it was pretty darn good that way too. I’d also recommend you pair it with your favorite Summer Ale :)
