Grilled Pineapple Salsa

Grilled Pineapple Salsa

Sharing is caring!

I made this amazing grilled pineapple salsa to serve with pork tenderloin over the weekend.  It is good, and such an easy recipe.  Grilling the ingredients adds a great smokey depth to the salsa.  I got the idea from a grilled peach salsa I made last year.


This salsa recipe would be a great addition to serve with pork or even chicken.  Summer food!  I really enjoyed how the ingredients slightly caramelized before adding the spicy punch of smokey jalapenos.   is a great addition.


If you have not tried grilling fruit, give it a whirl this summer.  You will be pleasantly suprirsed!


Grilled Pineapple Salsa


  • fresh pineapple cut into ½” in rings
  • ½ jalapeño
  • ½ red onion, cut into quarters
  • ½ cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

How To:

  1. Heat your BBQ according to the directions. Or heat a stove-top grill over medium-high heat.
  2. Place the pineapple rings, jalapeño, and red onion onto the hot grill.
  3. Grill for 3 minutes; flip over, and repeat. Only grill until you have grill marks.
  4. You do not want to over-cook, they should still be slightly crunchy.
  5. This process is meant to give them a nice smokey flavor. Let cool.
  6. Roughly chop and mix together in a bowl.
  7. Sprinkle the salt and cilantro over the top, lightly toss.
  8. Set aside at least 30 minutes to let the flavors mingle.
  9. Serve with your favorite grilled meat or tortilla chips.

Oh boy! This is a fabulous idea! I might have to try putting this salsa on top of grilled salmon. I think it'd be great.
