Grilled Pineapple and Macadamia Nut Salsa

Grilled Pineapple and Macadamia Nut Salsa

Serves 8

30 minutes or fewer

Grilled pineapple and macadamia nuts give this salsa a hint of the tropics. Serve with chips or as a topping for grilled tofu cutlets. If you can’t find macadamia nuts, replace them with toasted pumpkin seeds or pine nuts.
  • 1 large pineapple, quartered
  • ½ cup unsalted dry-roasted macadamia nuts, chopped
  • ½ cup diced red bell pepper
  • ¼ cup diced red onion
  • 2 Tbs. lime juice
  • 2 Tbs. finely chopped cilantro
  • 2 tsp. seeded and diced jalapeño chile
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (1 tsp.)
  • ¾ tsp. chipotle chile powder

1. Preheat grill or grill pan. Grill pineapple quarters 4 minutes on each side, or until tender and juicy and dark brown char marks appear.

2. Chop pineapple into 1/4-inch cubes, and transfer to bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients, and season with salt and pepper, if desired.

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

Loved this recipe, and will add it to my "Best macadamia Nut Recipes" blog over at Squidoo! Use fresh Hawaii macadamia nuts for this recipe. I get mine from In my opinion, Hawaii produces the best Mac Nuts!

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.
