Grilled Pineapple and Avocado Salsa

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 25 mins

This is yummy over fish and any kind of meat! I also like to have it over rice and grains. I think this would be great as a pizza topping! These ingredients are used in the Caribbean, Mexico, Spain and the Southwest, also Hawaii(Western USA).

A supreme sidedish. I added one grilled pepper to this recipe.
Very easy, tasty and light. Coreander is very important!
Thanks a lot for posting it!

I really couldn't figure out what to do with this one. It has obviously worked well for some folks, so I spent a lot of time double-checking the instructions that I hadn't missed something, but it just never came together. It's not really a sauce, the components are in chunks. The rather large pineapple pieces, in comparison to the avocado, and the small quantity of jalapeno, made it difficult to use in a way that one could get a flavor-balanced mouthful. The grilled pineapple and the avocado each "mush" a little bit, which makes an attractive presentation difficult. It's not bad tasting, but I think these ingredients could be used more effectively.

yes yes yes. we eat this all the time with pulled pork tacos. i leave the jalepeno out of the salsa because the meat is already sooooo spicy (yum). there are NEVER any leftovers.
