Serves: 8

Hands On Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


1 ripe pineapple, peeled, cored, and sliced into ½-inch-thick slabs

1 red bell pepper, seeded and finely diced

1/2 red onion, finely diced

1 jalapeño pepper, finely diced

1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, finely chopped

Juice of 2 limes

2 tablespoons honey

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


Heat a grill to medium-high heat. Place the pineapple directly on the grill and cook until grill marks have formed, 3 to 5 minutes. Use a spatula to flip and cook for another 2 minutes. Transfer the pineapple to a baking sheet and let cool.

Slice the cooled pineapple into 1/2-inch cubes and place inside a large mixing bowl. Stir in the bell pepper, onion, jalapeño, cilantro, lime juice and honey. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve.
