Meatless Monday Recipe – Grilled Pineapple Mango Salsa

14 Jul

Grilling pineapple gives the fruit a lovely hint of smoke, while lime balances the sweet with sour citrus and jalapeño packs a spicy punch. Serve this summertime salsa atop your favorite bean burgers, salads and tacos or use it as an appetizer with some nachos or crackers.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 of a ripe pineapple, peeled, cored and sliced 1 inch thick
  • 2-4  jalapeños, depending on spice preference
  • a little olive oil, to grill the pineapples and jalapeños
  • 1 mango, peeled and diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, minced
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons cilantro, diced
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Instructions:

Spray pineapple slices and jalapeños with a little oil. Grill on a gas grill or grill pan over medium-high heat for about 2 minutes per side, or until pineapples and jalapeños are charred slightly and set aside to cool slightly. Dice the jalapeños and pineapple slices after they cool and place in a large bowl.

In a medium bowl, stir together the diced mango, green onions, cilantro, lime juice, honey and olive oil. Add mango mixture to the charred, diced pineapples and jalapeños. Season with a few dashes of hot sauce and salt and pepper to taste.

Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Bring to room temperature before serving.

Enjoy!
