Cranberry Pineapple Salsa
Good with Turkey, Chicken or Pork

Serves 8


1 (4-pounds) pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 - 12 ounce bag fresh cranberries
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar, or to taste
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 cup packed cilantro sprigs, coarsely chopped

Preheat oven to 450°F with rack in upper third.

Toss pineapple and onion with oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large 4-sided sheet pan, then roast, stirring occasionally, until charred in spots, 40 minutes to 1 hour.

Meanwhile, pulse cranberries in a food processor until coarsely chopped, then transfer to a large bowl and stir in 1/3 cup brown sugar.

Add hot roasted-pineapple mixture, stirring until sugar has dissolved, then stir in citrus juice. Season with brown sugar and salt. Cool, then stir in cilantro. Let stand, covered, 1 hour.

COOKS NOTE: Salsa, without cilantro, can be made 3 days ahead and chilled. Bring to room temperature and add cilantro before serving.
