VIP Mango / Pineapple Salsa


  • 1 fully ripened pineapple/ 3 ripened mangos
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ¼ of a medium red onion
  • 1 lime
  • 1 Serrano pepper
  • hand full of cilantro
  • salt/Tajin
  • Olive Oil


  • Dice onion, garlic gloves, serrano, cilantro into small pieces. Squeeze in ½ lime. When it comes to the serrano, put as much or as little as you would like. Serrano is a late heat that sneaks up on you. If you like the flavor but not the heat, remove the seeds and ribs and question your manhood.  Guys, use rubber gloves or be sure to wash your hands before using the restroom.  Consider yourself warned.
  • Remove exterior skin of pineapple/mango.  Shave flesh from core. Coat pineapple/mango with olive oil and place on the grill. Grill both sides evenly until you have nice grill marks.  Hardest part is not eating it before you dice it up. Dice up the grilled pineapple/mango and mix it in with the rest of your ingredient.
  • Season with Salt and Tajin.  What is Tajin you ask? It is an amazing Mexican seasoning that goes great on fruit and vegetables.  Yes, you will find it in the Mexican food isle of your grocery store.  There are two types, original and low sodium.  My wife bought me low sodium once…
