Grilled Chicken with Mango-Pineapple Salsa

Pineapple Salsa

Is there anything more celebratory than the first grill of the season?  The promises of sun-drenched days, the rhythmic sound of the sprinklers running, the not-so-rhythmic sound of children playing. 

One of my very favorite grill recipe “formulas” is a grilled meat (or chicken or fish), served with a fresh salsa on top of rice.  It seems to work every time in all of it’s possible variations.

This version, Grilled Chicken with Mango-Pineapple Salsa comes from Cooking Light.  It was the perfect introduction to the grilling season.  Since you can find it easily by following the link above, I won’t bother retyping it here.  But really go check it out, if nothing else make the salsa.

    I grill all year round, so nothing says summer to me like pineapple. Don’t know why, but I only eat pineapple in the warm weather months. Love the combination of hot grilled meat and cold salsa.

    I love fruit salsas over meat! Especially chicken. I wanted to comment on weekend cat blogging also, Poor smudge. I can just see on that screened in porch…with that “look” on his face. :)

    I’m going to take this idea but add a step of using pineapple rings and grilling them first for the salsa.
