    I really liked this salad, and only gave it 4 stars because I'm not a big salad eater. I've found the easiest way to grill scallops is in a George Foreman grill. It eliminates having to flip the delicate scallops. Yum! I used Old Bay seasoning on the scallops for a little extra bite. Very good!

    I wish I had thought of using my foreman grill! It would have saved me the time of treking down to the grill and waiting for the coals to turn took MUCH longer than 3 minutes per side. This salad is excellent.

    Delicious and easy! I have made this a couple of times. It is impressive to guests, and easy to put together. The pineapple and avocado really balance out the flavors in the salad. I love scallops, but would also consider trying this with a nice piece grouper or halibut. As for cooking the scallops, I basted them, just a little, with a mixture of olive oil and fresh lime juice to keep them from drying out. I love scallops and did not want to cover the flavor up. Grilling scallops becomes easy with practice. Preheat the (gas) grill to get it nice an hot for searing, then turn it down to low when you put the scallops on. The you should only have to turn them once. For charcoal, use direct heat for searing and then indirect to finish cooking. This is what seems to work for me, others may have another successful method to offer.

    Dee-lish. I'd recommend making the dressing in the bottom of the salad bowl before grilling anything, though!

    Very easy . Ours may have turned out a bit spicier than the recipe? -- we bought hot mango chutney & Prudhomme's seasoning blend. Made the salad dressing and let sit for an hour or so. Thunderstorms killed grilling outside, so used the Foreman instead, doing the pineapple first, a quick wipe clean, and then the scallops. Shellfish came out perfect at 3min. Gorgeous on the plate & great flavors. Started with small portions of Thomas Keller's gazpacho. Very good summer supper.

    This was yummy, but spicier than I thought it would be. Will make again though, easy too!
