Delicious grilled mango and pineapple tossed in a mouthwatering salad! You will want to make this all summer long!

Hey Recipe Critic readers! This is Chelsea back from Chelsea’s Messy Apron! The weather is warming up which means it’s time to start grilling right?!

If you’ve never grilled fresh fruit, you are in for a huge treat. Grilled fruit is one of my absolute favorite things to eat. It makes the fruit ultra sweet and really heightens the flavors.

Adding that delicious grilled fruit to a salad and this is one salad you’ll be craving (and making) all summer long!

To toast the nuts: place the nuts in a single layer in a dry saucepan/skillet (don’t add anything) over medium heat. Stir constantly until the nuts are barely fragrant – just a couple of minutes. Watch carefully as the nuts are VERY easily scorched/burned.

To toast the coconut: place the coconut flakes in a dry saucepan/skillet (don’t add anything) over medium heat. Stir frequently until the flakes are mostly golden brown. If you are using sweetened coconut, it browns faster than unsweetened.

Delicious grilled mango and pineapple tossed in a mouthwatering salad!  You will want to make this all summer long! 
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Grill Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 6 Servings


  • 1 10 ounces package of romaine lettuce
  • 1 pineapple
  • 2 large mangos
  • 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts toasted
  • 1/3 cup flaked coconut toasted
  • 2-3 green onions
  • 1 red bell pepper



  • Chop the romaine lettuce into small pieces to allow for more absorption of the dressing.
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil grate with olive oil.
  • Grill pineapple for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until heated through and grill marks appear.
  • Slice a mango into 2 pieces and grill until heated through about 3-4 minutes or until grill marks appear.
  • Chop the pineapple and mangoes into large chunks and add to the salad.
  • Lightly toast the macadamia nuts and coconut. (See last paragraph of post for directions).
  • Add to the salad.
  • Finely chop the green onions and bell pepper (remove stems and seeds) and add to the salad.
  • Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a mason jar, seal, and shake well to combine. The dressing is extremely thin/watery (there is nothing like mayo or dijon mustard to thicken it up), but it's super delicious. Just make sure to dress after serving out the salad and it sticks to the lettuce quite well.
  • Only dress what you will eat as the dressing will make the salad soggy if it sits for a long time.
  • Enjoy!

    Thank you Chelsea. This is a delicious way to utilise gorgeous fresh mangoes and pineapples. And the dressing compliments the salad beautifully. Although with the sweetness from the pineapple juice and the tablespoon of honey I found it unnecessary to add the tablespoon of white sugar.

  2. I was looking for a salad to servealong side bacon wrapped jalapeño pepper. I wanted something that would make them a linchpin, not just a snack. This is perfect, thanks.
