Nothing speaks to me like that sweet and salty combination…especially during the summer months! It’s the flavor profile I crave the most, so when I came up with these yummy tostadas I was PUMPED!!!

If you have never experimented with grilled fruit, what have you been waiting for?? Let’s get you in the game….

tajin spice

Slice a fresh pineapple in to 1 inch rings…sprinkle a spicy seasoning (like Tajin) across both sides and place on a hot grill pan…simple as that! Grilling the fruit brings out more of the natural sweetness and caramelized the sugars. It is yum yum yum.
