The sun was shining on my plate as I looked at my helping of Grilled Pineapple Avocado & Corn Salad. The salad seemed to glow, looked like gold and brought to mind gold-miners from much-loved Westerns of my childhood. Hope this post provides a little chuckle as you enjoy your very own portion of this delicious salad.

I found gold in them thare food-bloggin’ hills. I was diggin’ deep in that fer-tile soil where all foodies go for at least some of their cookin’ creativity – a place they call the internets. I was lookin’ for some inspirein’ ways to use leftover Grilled Pineapple with Lime Zest. All of a sudden, I beheld a thang of beauty; sal-sa that looked like pure gold. I didn’t trust my eyes at first. I thought it must be fool’s gold, but I knew I had to give her a try.

I used shovel, pick and ax and panned out only the best and biggest of them golden nuggets. I chopped, rinsed and swirled until everything was just right then I chomped down on the biggest golden bite I could find. Gosh-dang-it and Hallelujah! I had me some real gold! Real gold I say!!Grilled PIneapple, Avocado & Corn Salad is delicious served as a salad or salsa. The perfect pairing of flavors and so beautiful. www.simplysated.comThis gold is juicy, sweet & sour, crunchy and burstin’ at the seams with flavor. I won’t call it sal-sa. I call it salad, so I can spoon a big helpin’ on my plate, shovel it in my mouth then go in for second-helpins’.

I have a serious hankerin’ for more of this gold. I’ll admit I’m kind of skeered. I’m afeared I might meet my maker just like so many forty-niners have before me, face down in a pan of gold. But my, oh my, what a way to go! Grilled PIneapple, Avocado & Corn Salad is delicious served as a salad or salsa. The perfect pairing of flavors and so beautiful. www.simplysated.com
