Grilled Pineapple with Lime Zest – oh so right!  A wedding took place in my home last week. Grilled Pineapple married Lime Zest and it was a total surprise. My husband and I were contentedly loading our plates with all things grilled and yummy (chicken, onions, peppers and pineapple) when I heard a soft voice say, “I love you and want to marry.” I realized the pineapple was talking to and staring at the lime zest with serious intentions in his eyes. I had great plans for the zest, so I asked the pineapple if he was sure. He said, “Trust me!” I told him the zest was a sassy little thing and he was so sweet; I wasn’t sure their marriage would work. He was insistent, assured me it was a match made in cordon bleu heaven, and so I obliged.  As the ceremony ended, the lime kissed the pineapple and taste buds went craaazy.Grilled Pineapple with Lime Zest is a terrific side dish or dessert.

Grilled Pineapple with Lime Zest is the best culinary marriage since the strawberry discovered cream. Just like in any great union, each personality brings out the best in the other.

The lime zest said to the pineapple, “You are so sweet and sunny.” The pineapple said to the zest, “You are tart and sassy.” Then each said to the other, “We complement each other perfectly.”

Thank you for your vision, pineapple. This marriage will surely take the golden anniversary pineapple upside-down cake.
