Roasted Pineapple Salsa

Tonight’s dinner was so simple, yet simple. A great combination. Quesadilla, roasted pineapple salsa, and pinto beans.   The brightness of the pineapple was just was this dreary rainy day needed.

Roasted Pineapple Salsa

1 pineapple, cored and diced
Zest of 1 lime
Juice of 1 lime
1 t. maple syrup
1 t. taco seasoning
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1/4 cup jalapeno, chopped

Combine pineapple, lime juice and zest, maple syrup and seasoning.
Roast in a 400° oven for 15 minutes.
Combine with remaining ingredients and refrigerate until needed.

I actually used the remainder of my pickled red onion and jalapeno and threw in a touch of chile oil for heat.

We ate the salsa with quesadillas.  I used this quesadilla recipe as inspiration, I though it was interesting to cook egg a bit and throw in a corn tortilla as the base.  That is really the only part of the recipe I used, my filling was just leftover chicken and some shredded cheese.  Love it with the egg, it would make a great breakfast.

    Except for the red onions, I am all over this – I’ve never roasted pineapple before – I will try this soon and let you know how it turns out.

    It sucked that I had to scrape my car to go to the gym this morning!!

      I am killing ya with the onions lately! I had this on a tuna steak for lunch, and it was delicious. Next time I am going to try this with mango in place of the pineapple. Agree, the snow sucks. So much for the 1st softball game.

    I just bookmarked a recipe for roasted pineapple chili. I am going to send it to you, this sounds SO good!!!!! Extra cilantro for Scott!!! I started buying my herbs for planting already (too many trips to home improvement stores will do that to you) and of course cilantro was numero uno!

    I have all of the ingredients for this at the moment. I will be making this tonight. I am thinking with grilled salmon!
