Pineapple is one of my favorite fruits to cook with! Even though it’s available all-year-round, the peak season is between March-July! I love pineapple because it’s so versatile! It goes well in any sweet or savory recipe!

And here’s another reason why I love pineapple….

Pineapple has so many amazing benefits!

  • Pineapple helps to boost immunity and suppress inflammation due to its high concentration of vitamins including vitamin C.
  • Pineapple aids in muscle recovery. The combination of Bromelain, vitamin C and manganese makes this fruit the perfect remedy for recovering those hard-working muscles.
  • Pineapple helps to strengthen and improve bone health. Pineapple contains manganese which contributes to bone health and helps to maintain healthy connective tissues. One cup of pineapple contains over 70% of the recommended daily serving of manganese your body needs!

I’ve always loved pineapple salsa! Ever since I tried it for the first time in Florida, I was hooked! We were in Destin, FL for a work conference and stopped by this Taco Restaurant that had the most AMAZING pineapple salsa! Luckily, I was able to recreate this recipe and decided to pair it with these delicious Honey Glazed Pork Chops!

When making this Honey Glazed Pork Chops and Pineapple Salsa recipe, I started by marinating my pork chops for a few minutes. You’ll be pleasantly surprised that the honey provided the perfect flavor without being overly sweet! It balanced those savory seasonings out perfectly!

I used my cast iron stovetop grill to cook my pork chops. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my cast iron stovetop grill! I received it as a birthday present a few years ago and it’s seriously my best friend! It grills my meat perfectly and gives it those cute little grill marks!

While my meat was cooking, I put together my pineapple salsa which only took a few minutes! The pineapple salsa paired very well with the Honey Glazed Pork Chops! It provided a sweet and tangy flavor that really took this recipe to another level! I normally eat my pork chops with cooked apples but my new favorite pork pairing is definitely pineapple!
