Salsa Sunday: Grilled Pineapple Salsa

So your looking at the date and thinking..."its not Sunday?!!?" Perhaps on Sunday you were constantly checking out this blog to see the next Salsa Sunday post and thinking..."Where the heck is it!"

Sunday we had friends over for a BBQ and honestly I would rather watch this...

any day over getting a post in on time. Those boys had a blast. Of course there was lots of salsa to snack on while we all waited for the entree to finish cooking. It was a fun night. Afterwards it was off to bed for baby and then mom and dad chatting the night away with a little slow dancing under the full moon to cap off the evening. Yeah...would do that all over a blog post any day.

But I did make a Salsa on Sunday. One that I will share with you...right now. It all started earlier in the week when I picked this beauty up from the grocery store. Every time I see a pineapple I am reminded of Maui and the pineapple tour we took there.

Obviously this was not a Maui pineapple but we can still make it just as tasty. In fact we can turn it into a very wonderful salsa. All we need is one pineapple and the magic of the Grill.

Grilled pineapple is a magical unicorns or ligers (lion + tiger, bred for their skill in magic).
A sweet/tart fruit turns into a juicy sweet grilled awesomeness.

Pair that with some salsa staples and you get a little piece of heaven on a chip or your grilled meats, fishes...hey...I might even eat my hand if it was covered in this.

With a dash of salt to top it off you have a little bit of magic right in your own home. So here it is:

Grilled Pineapple Salsa

One Pineapple, sliced and grilled (or put under the broiler) to your liking then diced
1/2 a bunch of cilantro, washed a diced, stems and leaves
1/2 of a small red onion, diced
lime and salt to taste (here you want to find your perfect balance of sweet a salty)

Eat on anything or nothing. Just enjoy it!

I also made some classic guacamole and some pico de gallo con queso for appetizers and it got me thinking that I should really do some salsa prep posts here. Seriously with a little prep you can make salsa in minutes!

Something to consider in the future I guess. In the meantime...
