Don’t get us wrong, we adore sweet dishes with pineapple (Hello, upside-down cake and piña coladas!). But something magical happens when the fruit is used in savory dishes. Here, we char the pineapple for caramelized notes, then stir into a salsa with tomato, onion, cilantro, and lime. It makes the perfect refreshing-yet-sweet topping for zesty, savory chicken tacos. Dollop over smoky red pepper crema for cooling balance, then take one bite and let the flavor party begin.
