Tropical Salsa Inferno

Tropical Salsa Inferno
Makes 3 generous cups

This is a good universal fruit salsa and I have used it on grilled Mahi Mahi, Salmon or Ahi Tuna. The grilled pinapple and honey combine for a very delightful taste sensation and worth the effort.  You could certainly add papaya or other tropical fruit, fresh ripe tomatos would also add a nice dimension. 

Play with it and enjoy the party!

1 1/2 cup diced mango
1 cup finely chopped grilled pineapple
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/2 cup diced sweet red pepper
1-2 yellow inferno peppers, (or jalapeno) diced, seeds removed 
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro 
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/8 tsp ground red pepper
In medium bowl whisk dressing ingredients to combine.
Add fresh ingredients and stir to coat. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving for flavors to blend.

Grilled Pineapple
Cook’s Notes
1. Grilled pineapple rings gives a new texture and flavor layer to this salsa. The light char and carmelization of the sugars really brings out a nice sweetness when combined with the honey and lime juice. Heat 1” thick pineapple rings on grill 3-4 minutes each side. Set aside to cool, remove core then chunk for salsa.  I prep a whole pineapple then freeze remainder for later uses.
2. Taste hot peppers before adding to mixture to see how hot you can take it. Adjust to suite.
