  1. We grilled the bell pepper and onion as well, and it was wonderful. First of your recipes, and happy so far. Thank you!

  2. This was fabulous and a big hit at my dinner party. I made extra salsa because it keeps for several weeks in the refrigerator. This way I only needed to make the meat. It is great with pork, chicken and fish.

  3. Absolutely to die for! I LOVED it! The pineapple salsa is just awesome. Tasted pretty good on some left over fish too but definently a match for a meatier meat.

  4. This was very good, even though we forgot to get cilantro at the store… I added some tarragon and extra lime to the salsa. Yum!

  5. I wanted to use up the rest of the jarred salsa I had left in the fridge. Big mistake. Have to make this one again the right way. :/

  6. The first time we made this on the grill and it was PERFECT! Definitely a favorite. The second time it was raining so we used the broiler according to the directed times, and it came out very raw, like practically mooing. If I need to broil again, I’ll cook MUCH longer.

  7. When I cooked this for my boss… I was drooling,,,, after that I went home quickly I grabbed this recipe… For my self…wow ilov it..thx

  8. This tasted lovely but we found there wasn’t really enough left for leftovers for 2 people. The pineapple was stunning.

  9. I made this last night. Ooh-De-Lally! It was incredible. And easy. My favorite from this site so far and I will be making it again and again.
