Grilled Pineapple and Pepper Salad – Gluten Free

gluten free, vegetarianThis salad is a grilled combination of sweet and savory, with an added garlic punch of flavor. It’s lightly seasoned with salt and pepper and a great addition to any BBQ.

On my recent trip to Minnesota, we must have grilled every single night. This was definitely the night of the shish kabob feast.

For something different, my dad recommended using the grill basket for my vegetarian dish and it was a fun change from the kabobs. (Although, I’m sure they probably would have tasted the same on a skewer!)

This was my favorite dish from the feast but I must provide a tip.

Um, how to say this delicately?

Make sure the peppers are cooked well to avoid unpleasant side effects.

If you haven’t experienced side effects from raw peppers, then you probably don’t need to read this.

The fruit that I left out that would have been delicious with this? Strawberries!

  1. Wish I’d seen this before cooking on the grill tonight. Will definitely try it soon! Another fruit suggestion which is good cooked on the grill: mangoes.
