Grilled Pineapple Corn Salsa

One of the great joys of summertime grilling, is having access to fresh fruit and vegetables.  How do you make any fruit or vegetable go from good to great?  Have them kiss some hot grates between the market and the dinner table.



I love salsa and I like it even more when I grill the ingredients.  No matter your "salsa mix,” consider the grill to add new flavor and texture.
