Grill Pineapple Black Bean Salsa- Healthy, flavorful and easy salsa bursting with grilled pineapple, black beans, bell pepper and jalapeño peppers. Tastes even better the next day with an intense, bold flavor.
I’d like to introduce you to a simple fiesta side dish made with grilled pineapple, black beans, chopped bell peppers, tomatoes, jalapenos, cilantro, lime juice, onions and honey.
The thing is when you combine all these fresh ingredients you are rewarded with a burst of freshness, sweetness, color, and texture. And a boatload of healthy deliciousness that would make you want to eat the whole bowl and feel good about it.
Just perfect for grill season or accompaniment to any of Tacos or Pineapple Chicken.
A key component in making salsa is that you might have to adjust the flavors depending on your ingredients. I really like my salsa spicy with a kick to it, so I make it with loads of jalapenos.
But when am entertaining I use little to no jalapenos especially if kids are involved.
These pineapples here are exceptionally sweet and so I adjust the amount of honey used. Just saying, you have to adjust as you go (depending on your pineapple.)
