Grilled Pineapple Salad

Grilled pineapple tastes wonderfully juicy and looks very special with the grill marks on. This recipe for grilled pineapple uses fresh, rather than canned, pineapple because it tastes so much better. This grilled pineapple recipe features the flavors of mint and lemon and also onion, which goes very well with the pineapple flavor.

Some grilled pineapple recipes are for making pineapple desserts but this one is for making a savory grilled pineapple salad, which is great served with fish, meat or vegetarian grilled recipes. If you are serving this salad as an accompaniment to a meal, it looks good served on a large lettuce leaf, and it is nice served warm.

Making this dish is very easy. First get the grill nice and hot, and you can prepare the pineapple while the grill is heating up. The pineapple can then be grilled for 5 minutes per side, or until it is done and you can see grill marks on there. The onion will take about the same amount of time to cook through. When the onion and pineapple are both juicy, charred and hot, you can toss them with lemon juice, lemon zest and fresh mint, to add contrasting flavors. The bright citrus zing of the lemon contrasts very nicely with the sweetness of the pineapple, and also the onion because onion becomes sweeter when cooked too. If you want to make a dessert recipe rather than a savory salad, omit the onion, salt and pepper, and add some honey or sugar to the lemon juice mixture at the end, then serve it with vanilla ice cream.
