Have I told y’all about my fruit salsa obsession? Well. It all started with that peach mango salsa at Trader Joe’s. You’ve had the stuff, right? I used to put it on everything. Eggs. Salad. Chicken. What a weirdo, I know. But then I learned how to make fruit salsa at home, and I’ve been having fun experimenting with my own combinations. My current fave is Grilled Peach and Pineapple.
This salsa would still rock without grilling the fruit first, but I promise it’s worth the extra step. It adds a smokey flavor to the already sweet and spicy salsa. Plus, it just slightly tenderizes the fruit, making it even that much more juicy for the mixture.
You wanna know the craziest part? I made this on our stove top grill pan (not even a real BBQ)!. Easy peasy, right? I love summer.
Begin by heating your grill. Spray or oil it slightly to prevent the fruit from sticking. Once it’s hot, place the peaches directly on the grill, face down. Let sit for 4-6 minutes, or until distinct grill lines appear. You don’t want to actually cook the fruit all the way through, just get it nice and charred. Set peaches aside and place the pineapple slices onto the grill. Cook just as you did with the peaches, except you’ll want to grill each side of the pineapple. When both sides have been nicely grilled, remove from heat and let cool slightly.
Next, dice the grilled peaches and pineapple and add to a large bowl. Top with onion, cilantro, jalapeño and lime juice. Mix and let sit for at least a few minutes to let the flavors take effect. Enjoy!
