Uh so ya, that is pretty much how much I love salsa. Annnnnnd how much of a huge nerd I am. How may people do you know that write poetry about their food? Yup, that’s me!
Hey, my Snap Chat name isn’t kitchen geek for nuthin’ ya know!
Annnnnnnnnnnnyway, let’s get to the salsa shall we? Yes, let’s!
I love mixing it up with my salsa, and that is another thing that makes it so awesome. You can use mango, peach, avocado, strawberry, heck I have even seen blueberry salsa!
But with this pineapple salsa I wanted to take it even farther by grilling it. Grilling season is launching here in Western Washington (which translated means that there are now pockets of sunshine that last long enough to grill without getting soaking wet) so of course my desire to throw everything on it has commenced. Plus, grilling adds that nice smoky flavors, and caramelizes the sugar of the pineapple to make it ever soooo tasty. It was hard for me to not just eat the grilled pineapple naked.
I mean the pineapple naked, without the rest of the salsa stuff…..
not me naked…….
OK, do me a favor.
Make this salsa and then you will understand what I mean!
Preheat a grill pan or grill over high heat. Rub the grill with a bit of oil and grill each side of the pineapple slices until dark grill marks appear, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Roughly chop the pineapple and add it to a bowl with the cilantro, ginger, lime zest and juice, jalapeno and onions. Season with salt and pepper.
