Grilled Pineapple

Grill your meat this summer and pile on the pineapple salsa. No better way to get a healthy dose of fruit and vegetables and enjoy a great summer meal.

You can grill it and serve it or make it into a relish to serve on the side.

Use your imagination and look for pineapples when they are on sale in your grocery. I have found them for as little as $2.99.

Bon Appetit!

1 cup finely chopped fresh pineapple
2 tablespoons finely chopped purple onion
2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
1 tablespoon finely chopped red bell pepper, optional
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon honey
dash ground red pepper, cayenne or chipotle
2 teaspoons finely minced jalapeno pepper, optional
juice of 1 fresh lime, about 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Combine all ingredients; cover and refrigerate for an hour or more to blend flavors. Serve with grilled or broiled fish, chicken, or pork.

Makes about 1 1/3 cups.
