Grilled Banana and Red Onion Salsa
From Cook's Country
Our Grilled Banana and Red Onion Salsa is a quick fruit-based condiment in the spirit of Caribbean cooking. It’s great matched with jerk chicken—or anything else hot off the grill. We grilled semiripe bananas and red onion for a sweet-tart salsa. The bananas and onion can be grilled alongside the chicken over high heat. Flavoring the salsa with lime juice, cumin, and mint—rum is optional here—lent it a decidedly Jamaican flair.
Makes about 3 cups
This cool fruit salsa is the perfect accompaniment to fiery jerk chicken. Grill the bananas and red onions alongside the chicken and then use them to make this salsa at the last minute. Slightly underripe bananas hold their shape especially well on the grill; however, other thickly sliced tropical fruits, including mangoes, papayas, or even pineapple, will work as well.
