Low in fat but high in sweet flavor, a one cup serving of pineapple can supply nearly an entire day's worth of vitamin C. It's also a great source of dietary manganese, which is said to contribute to healthy bones, nerves, and skin. Grilling pineapple to serve as dessert is a great summer treat, but it also lends itself to being served with savory ingredients like portobello mushrooms, bell peppers, and fish.
Each serving equals 1 cup of fruits or vegetables
1 Tbsp. olive oil
¼ tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp. honey
1 Tbsp. lime juice
1 firm yet ripe pineapple
1 Tbsp. grated lime zest
Directions: To make the marinade, in a large bowl, combine the olive oil, cloves, cinnamon, honey and lime juice and whisk to blend. Set aside. Sprinkle with the lime zest. Serve hot or warm.
