One of my favorite things on the grill is pineapple. I know, it may sound strange, but you can’t judge until you’ve tried it. It’s amazing! It caramelizes so well, and it’s so fresh and juicy…there’s nothing like it! I remember back in the day watching a Rachael Ray episode where she put honey and lime zest on pineapple, and it looked so good. I had some limes around, and JJ and I have been on a honey kick lately, so I decided to make some vanilla ice cream and eat it with the grilled pineapple. The mix of hot and cold and sweet and tart was outstanding! It might be my new favorite summer dessert.
