Grilled Pineapple with Mint SugarRecipe

Illustration: Holly Exley

Chargrilled pineapple slices caramelize and become extra juicy, a worthy dessert on their own. Go one step further with a generous sprinkle of mint-lime sugar--it adds an incredible fragrance and a bit of crunch to every bite. This is delicious on its own or served with low-fat vanilla ice cream.


Serves 6 (serving size: 2 wedges)

3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves
3/4 teaspoon finely grated lime rind

Cooking spray
1 tablespoon butter, melted

1. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium-high.

2. Combine sugar, mint, and rind in a mini food processor; process until mint is finely ground (mixture should resemble damp green sand).

3. Arrange pineapple on grill grates coated with cooking spray; cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until well marked. Arrange pineapple on a platter; drizzle evenly with butter. Sprinkle with sugar mixture; let stand 2 minutes before serving.
