READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Is This Really Nece

Nice as dessert or as a breakfast/lunch dish. Make sure that the pineapple is ripe. Best eaten warm, but can also be served cold.

I've grilled pineapple before, but never had a topping for it. I did not have basil handy, so I used some fresh apple mint, which worked very well with the other ingredients. Will do this again with basil. I grilled this on my panini grill.
