Sweet and Spicy Pineapple Salsa


The Big Pineapple.



Looks like a Mamma and her babies.



I think I take the same photo of grilling corn every time.



A pile of happiness.



Toss all these goodies together.



Add the lime juice and wedges and sprinkle with crushed toasted peanuts 
(which I forgot to do until after I took this shot, 'cause I'm an air head).



I think we should all just assume that any salad I make is going to include corn unless otherwise stated.

Toss all the ingredients except the peanuts, salt and lime juice and wedges, together in a large serving bowl.
