Mint adds an unexpected herb flavor to Minnesota TV host and author Andrew Zimmern's sweet and smoky salsa. It's ideal for summer, as a condiment to accompany grilled chicken, pork or fish.


  • 8 1/2-inch-thick pineapple slices, peeled and cored
  • 1 medium onion, thickly sliced crosswise
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 2 canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 lime, juiced (about 2 tablespoons)


  1. Brush pineapple and onion with oil. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Add pineapple; cook until pineapple has dark grill marks, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Repeat with onion. Let cool. Coarsely chop.
  2. In a blender, combine pineapple, onion, chipotle peppers, mint, cilantro and lime juice. Cover and pulse until ingredients are combined but still chunky. If needed, add 1 tablespoon of water to loosen. Season to taste with salt. Use within 24 hours.
