The weather is slowly but surely starting to warm up here in the midwest which makes me so extremely happy! After the long, cold Michigan winters, I take full advantage of grilling season and will use any excuse to head outdoors to fire up the grill. 

Grilling Pineapple

My favorite part about this easy grilled pineapple salsa is the caramelized, slightly smoky flavor of the fruit. As the pineapple cooks, the natural sugars begin to caramelize which takes this salsa to the next level.

To balance the sweetness, I toss the pineapple with bright lime juice, fresh cilantro, diced onions and minced jalapeños.

The end result is a perfectly well-rounded sweet, salt, sour and slightly spicy grilled fruit salsa that is irresistible with tortilla chips.

Dig in! No forks required.
