It’s no secret that we at TNN love all things pineapple—and this tangy Honeyed Pineapple Relish recipe from The Spice & Tea Exchange of Naples is the perfect way to add some fresh flavor to your summer barbecue. It pairs sweet grilled pineapple and summer vegetables with The Spice & Tea Exchange’s Chile Lime Sea Salt. We also love it as a delicious side with chips.



2 tsp. cilantro
2 tsp. Chile Lime Sea Salt from The Spice & Tea Exchange
1 tbsp. Honey, Granulated from The Spice & Tea Exchange
1 pineapple
1 orange bell pepper, chopped

1 lime, juiced
Extra lime wedges for serving


Prep time: 5 min.
Cook time: 10 min.

  1. Chop off both ends of the pineapple. Cut it into halves and trim off the skin.
  2. Grill the halves on both sides until they start turning a golden brown. Set aside to cool.
  3. Once cooled, slice each piece in half, and then slice and discard the hard core from each quarter.
  4. Dice the remaining pineapple.
  5. Add the pineapple and other ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Toss until combined.
