Grilled Pineapple and Corn Salsa


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


  • 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


  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.
