Many people find bright, sweet, and tangy pineapple irresistible. Plus, they’re rich in manganese, fiber, Vitamin C, and B vitamins like folate.

Whether you eat pineapples raw or incorporated into different dishes, they bring a sunny burst of tropical flavor. Rediscover the versatility of this fruit with these delicious and creative ways to eat a pineapple.

1. Pineapple Salsa

Pineapple salsa puts a sweet twist on refreshing salsa fresca. Combine diced pineapple with your favorite ingredients like tomatoes, red onions, jalapenos, cilantro, lime juice, and a pinch of salt.

Eat your zesty, fruity salsa as an appetizer or side. Enjoy the vibrant flavor with tortilla chips, grilled chicken, or fish.

2. Grilled Pineapple

Grilling brings out the pineapple’s sweetness and adds a tasty smoky flavor. Start with slices of peeled and cored pineapple.

You can brush the pineapple with your favorite seasoning sauce. A popular sweet seasoning includes butter, light brown sugar, and cinnamon. You can substitute honey for the sugar or add hot sauce to make your pineapples spicy.

Grill each side of the pineapple for two to three minutes or until each side becomes caramelized. Pull the pineapple off the grill and brush with the excess sweet sauce.

3. Pineapple Popsicles

Another delicious and creative way to eat pineapple is to turn it into a cold treat. Beat the heat with homemade popsicles. Pour your pineapple blend or mix into popsicle molds and freeze for at least four hours.

Customize your treat. You can make creamy pineapple popsicles by blending chopped pineapple with Greek yogurt, coconut milk, or combined heavy cream and condensed milk. Fruity, tart popsicles are simple—simply mix pineapple juice and sugar.

4. Pineapple Fried Rice

Pineapple chunks add a tropical flair to savory fried rice. It’s so easy to customize your homemade fried rice. This is also a quick and easy weeknight dinner that keeps well in the fridge if you want to make a larger batch.

Sautee diced pineapple with vegetables, cooked rice, soy sauce, and a dash of sesame oil. Add your favorite protein, like eggs, tofu, chicken, salmon, or beef.
