Grilled Pineapple and Macadamia Nut Salsa

Grilled Pineapple and Macadamia Nut Salsa

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.
