I can’t tell you how excited I am to be guest posting on Simply Gourmet today.  Sherron and I have been Facebook buddies for about a year or so.  We have a lot in common.  We both love food and photography.  It’s a friendship made in Heaven.  So when Sherron asked if anyone wanted to guest post for her, I jumped at the chance.  I apologize to you now that the photography isn’t spot on like you’re used to seeing.  Sherron’s pictures are drool worthy for sure.

I had a pineapple that was on the counter calling my name the other night.  So I decided to grill it and make a quick savory salsa with it.  The “mmmms” and “ohhhhs” were flying around the table.  Who knew that a quick sear, some pungent red onion and black beans could transform an ordinary pineapple into something so delish?  I served this salsa over pork tenderloin, but I bet it would be amazing topping a burger, on a barbecued chicken quesadilla or adorning your favorite tortilla chip.  However you decide to use it, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
