If you are a regular reader of my blog then you know I’ve been loving these cold salads during the hot weather!  This one is really easy to make because you can grill your pork and pineapple at the same time and don’t have to heat up the house with turning the oven on.  It’s sweet and juicy and it’s great for a hot summer night.  I use the grill a lot, probably 3-4 nights a week in the summer.  We love to sit outside and eat and enjoy outside after our patio is shaded and the temperature has cooled. 🙂

Grilled Pineapple and Strawberry Salad

Ingredients

  • one fresh pineapple
  •  8 oz strawberries, sliced
  • 1/2 medium red onion, chopped
  • splash of lemon and lime juice
  • cilantro-  I know a lot of people hate it or love it.  We love it!  I put about 1/3 of a bunch.
  • Optional-  You could make this more of a salsa by adding a jalapeño.

Directions

  • Slice core out of pineapple and into chucks.  Put on grill that’s set on med-high.  Don’t cut to small or they will fall through the grates on your grill.  Cook 5 minutes, flip and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Add strawberries, onion, lemon and lime juice, and cilantro to bowl.
  • Once pineapple has cooked, just a few minutes on each side, pull of and cut into bite sized pieces.  Mix with salad.
  • Serve immediately or store in refrigerator in airtight container.

I threw the pineapple on the grill with my Smithfield Garlic & Herb Loin Filet.  Grill for for 5 minutes per side.  I love Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork.  It’s something I buy a few times a month.  I can cut open the package and just throw it on the grill.  No other preparations are needed.   They have many different marinades to choose from so you can have different options for months.  It’s nice to be gone all day and when you get home you’ll have a flavorful meal waiting and you didn’t have to do anything!

I pulled them both off the grill around the same time.  While my pork was resting I made up the salad.

This was a great family meal.  My kids ate all their salad and meat, which is sometimes tough to get them to do.  Do you think your family would like this?

  1. I love that you can grill the side salad at the same time as the pork loin! We grill at least 3-4 nights a week during the summer, too. Adding this to the list to make soon! #client
