Grilled Pineapple and Macadamia Nut Salsa

Comments on this Recipe

I absolutely loved this salsa. It was easy to prepare and so good. My husband didn't care for the pineapple base - but he's weird.

Are there any recipes that are sugar free and gluten free?

I loved it!

Loved this recipe, and will add it to my "Best macadamia Nut Recipes" blog over at Squidoo! Use <a href="http://www.maunakeagold.com" rel="nofollow">fresh Hawaii macadamia nuts</a> for this recipe. I get mine from www.maunakeagold.com. In my opinion, Hawaii produces the best Mac Nuts!

I'm wondering what other seasoning might be added instead of chipotle Chili powder. An suggestions?

nice wonderful aidiya
