Grilled Pineapple with Balsamic Drizzle

It's Memorial Day Weekend here in the US and this is the time of year that officially kickoffs grilling season.  So I had to get my "grill-on".  I have never grilled fruit before in my life.  I have seen it being done a lot on TV cooking shows so I figured with the next pineapple I got hold of I must give it a try.  Then I thought grilled pineapple needs a sauce and I remembered Rachael Ray's Balsamic Drizzle.  I whipped both these in less than 20 minutes and I was in grilled pineapple heaven.  I never realized how sweet and savory the balsamic drizzle truly is... I even dipped fresh strawberries into it and it was blissful. I love that I stepped out of my comfort zone this Memorial Day Weekend and tried both these new dishes... it truly paid off.

1 fresh pineapple peeled and cored. Sliced into rings.
1-2 Tbs of butter

Balsamic Drizzle
1 cup Balsamic Vinegar
2 Tbs of brown sugar

Clean and prep your pineapple.  Now I don't have an outdoor grill anymore so I did these on a grill pan. I melted my butter right into my pan and grilled the pineapple.  If you are doing it on an outdoor grill, melted the butter and baste your pineapple as you get your grill marks.  This should only take a few minutes.

To make the Balsamic Drizzle: In a saucepan simmer the balsamic vinegar and brown sugar on medium-high heat for about 10 minutes until it is thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.

Drizzle over grilled pineapple or serve with any fresh strawberries. Enjoy.
