Posted for ZWT III, this a Southwestern dessert from 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes. This is a super easy way to dress up fruit for a quick dessert, and it will work with almost any kind of fruit that is fleshy enough to broil. I particularly like it over melon like honeydew. I am not a big fan of desserts, but this one is actually really really good and so versatile.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Stir together the first three ingredients.
  2. Lay the pineapple slices out over a foil lined broiler pan.
  3. Brush with 1/2 of the sugar mix and broil for about 5 minutes on one side.
  4. Turn the slices over and brush with the rest of the mixture broil for another 5 minutes.
  5. These can be garnished with mango salsa and chopped cilantro for a really pretty presentation.
  6. Enjoy!

Big hit with my family! I cut my pineapple in strips as I was dividing one whole one between two recipes. We really enjoyed the lightly sweetened flavor that complimented the fresh pineapple so well. It was not at all syrupy thick like I had expected it to be. Such an easy dessert too! Thanks for sharing, I Cook! Made & enjoyed for ZWT5 - Ali Baba's Babes.

I cut my pineapple into long spears and prepared as stated. It was a huge hit and even friends who prefessed to not liking pineapple enjoyed this.
