Grilled Pineapple and Corn Salsa

GrilledVeggies

I love grilled salsas! So when I saw this one over at Bev Cooks, I just had to try it. I paired it with grilled boneless pork chops and my Lemon Garlic Green Beans. Man, our tummies were humming with this dinner. I am so  much looking forward to grilling season!

Grilled Pineapple and Corn Salsa

Ingredients:

  • 1 pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2 inch thick slices

  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut in half

  • 3 scallions

  • 1 jalapeno pepper, halved lengthwise

  • 2 ears corn

  • 1 Tbsp ginger, minced

  • 3 sprigs fresh mint

  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro leaves

  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice

  • coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

Instructions:

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill or your oven broiler.

  2. Place the pineapple, red bell pepper halves, jalapeno pepper halves, corn and scallions on the grill.

  3. Drizzle a little olive oil over everything and a quick pinch of salt and pepper.

  4. Grill until everything is nicely charred.

  5. All the cooking times will be a little different.

  6. On a cutting board, give everything a rough chop.

  7. Now, place everything in the food processor EXCEPT the corn.

  8. Pulse just a few times until it’s still chunky.

  9. Pour the salsa into a bowl and stir the corn in.
