  • ½ fresh pineapple peeled, cored and cut into 1 inch thick batons
  • 1 sweet yellow onion maui or walla walla peeled and cut into ½ inch thick slices
  • 2 Tbsp. Mazola corn oil
  • 1 inch piece of peeled ginger minced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ red fresno chile minced
  • ¼ cup fresh mint minced
  • cup fresh cilanto minced
  • 2 limes juiced
  • 2 Tbsp. Mazola corn oil


  • Pre heat the grill to medium high heat. Brush the pineapple and onion with Mazola corn oil. Add to grill and grill until pineapple is caramelized and has turned a deeper shade of yellow - about 3 - 4 minutes per side. Add the onion slices and cook until onion is lightly browned.
  • Remove from grill and let cool.
  • When cool enough to handle, cut the pineapple into ½ inch dice and put in a large bowl. Dice the onion into ¼ inch dice and add to the pineapple. Add the remaining ingredients and stir. Season with salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasonings - if you like it spicier add more fresno chile! Serve


Your yield on this will vary a bit depending on the size of your pineapple. For an average sized pineapple, my yield was a little over 3 cups! This salsa is great served with tortilla or wonton chips, on chicken, salmon or other fish!
