 Roasted Pineapple Salsa

This summer is time to kick up your salsa by roasting pineapples and jalapenos for salsa. Fresh pineapple is roasted to bring out the natural sugars giving it a sweeter and smoky flavor.

Fresh and healthy, Roasted Pineapple Salsa Recipe gives tacos, salads, and burgers an out-of-this-world flavor. You may also serve it traditionally as a dip with tortilla chips… or eat it right out of the bowl with a spoon like I did. No judging!

  1. If you prefer to grill, you may opt to grill the pineapple and jalapeno, low and slow, for this recipe instead of roasting them in the oven.
  2. I used one jalapeno. You may want to use two.
  3. I recommend tasting jalapenos before adding them to any recipe. They vary greatly in level of heat.

How to pick a ripe pineapple

  1. Once a pineapple is picked, it will not ripen further.
  2. First, smell the bottom of the pineapple, not the crown. It should smell sweet, but not fermented.
  3. Give it a slight squeeze. A ripe pineapple will give slightly, yet still be firm.
  4. As well, it should be golden with green healthy leaves.
  5. Pineapples should be well developed with rounded edges, the eyes should be filled out, but flat.
  6. Furthermore, avoid pineapples with wrinkled or cracked skin. Also, avoid pineapples with reddish-brown spots, or brown withering leaves.
  7. Finally, a ripe pineapple will also be heavy for its size.
