Grilled Pineapple Salsa

Let’s spice up this Fourth’s BBQ with a Mexican/Latin American theme to break up the monotony of the same old ketchup, mustard and BBQ sauce. I love me some salsa, but the store-bought stuff often lacks the freshness that is required to really surprise and delight.. I found this little gem at Add this on top of chicken, pork, fish, even burgers, or even the Mexican Hot Dogs from our last recipe post, maybe without the bacon? I’ll leave that up to you. Here is a similar one with mango as well if that is your thing: Grilled Pineapple Mango Salsa
