Pineapple and Roasted Poblano Salsa

Pineapple and Roasted Poblano Salsa

As I mentioned in our last post, we were on vacation recently. Usually when we go on vacation, we don’t tend to cook too much. Maybe a meal here or there, but going out for meals is a big part of helping me switch into vacation mode. Along with a beer. Or two. And a frozen custard… However, on this last trip, we ended up eating at the house a lot and it was actually a nice change. Maybe it was cooking in someone else’s kitchen, or being in a beautiful house on the beach. It all contributed to the little bit of work not feeling so much like a task.

In addition to the full-on meals that he cooked, Chris whipped up this quick salsa with ingredients plucked out of the garden (poblanos), fruit that was on the counter (pineapple) and something you always have in the fridge (garlic). This was awesome with salty tortilla chips and would be delicious on grilled chicken, in tacos or on top of a salad. Or if you just have a spoon, that would also be just fine.

Pineapple and Roasted Poblano Salsa

2 large poblano peppers
1 pineapple, cored and diced
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped
pinch of kosher salt

Brush olive oil on poblanos

Grill/broil peppers on high, until peppers char on all sides; remove from grill to cool

Roasted Poblano

Remove the pepper stems and peel the skin off; slice in half to de-seed and chop finely

Combine pineapple, poblanos and garlic in a bowl and add a pinch of salt; stir to combine

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes

    When I first saw the post, I thought it said pineapple and roasted POTATO salsa. The world knows I love potatoes, but with pineapple??? I was so glad to realize it said Poblano. Now I think I need to run over to El Napolito for some chips (at 7:30 AM).

      You are Irish through-and-through! I’m jealous about the El Nap chips!
