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 thing...like 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...
