Grilled Pineapple Salsa – super fresh, sweet, a little spicy, and perfect for summer. Great over chicken, pork, fish, or just to snack on with chips!
Have you ever been to a Brazilian steak house? The places that come around to your table with meat on a stick. They usually have close to 20 different types of meat and things to pick from, and you just tell them if you want them to slice you a piece or not. We have one in town, and my son loves going there. We have only been a handful of times, but it is always a fun experience when we do to. And strangely enough one of my favorite things they have is their grilled pineapple. I think it is glazed with honey and brown sugar, and it is so good! After making Grilled Teriyaki Shrimp Kebobs with pineapple, I knew I need to experiment with it more at home.
I have shied away from pineapple in savory recipes for a long time. I am not sure why, I just didn’t think I would like them. So when I finally sucked it up and tried it, I was shocked how much I loved it. In fact the whole family loved it. I have seen pineapple salsas all over the internet for the past few summers, so I wanted to give it a try. I wanted it a little spicy, but lots of lime juice. Lots of fresh flavors and so easy to make!
Grilled pineapple salsa might become a staple in our house this summer. So far we have had it on chicken and eaten it with chips. I am thinking of making shrimp or fish tacos with it next. You can really use it however you want. Pork chops would be great, or a grilled pork tenderloin. Oh the possibilities! So fire up the grill, and grill some pineapple for a super easy and versatile salsa.
