Directions

SALSA (will need to cihill)

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat (350°F to 400°F).
  2. Grill pineapple and onion 5 minutes or until well-marked but not cooked through. Chop and place in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk together the Chipotle Olive Oil and Pineapple Balsamic Vinegar. Toss in mangoes, pineapple, and remaining ingredients.
  4. Cover and chill.

* Use to top chicken wings (great on fish as well).

WINGS

  1. Combine soy sauce, Garlic Olive Oil, pepper, Blackberry-Ginger Balsamic Vinegar, sparkling water or lemonade, mustard, and wings in a large, zip-top bag. Close bag and refrigerate 4 hours to overnight.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat.
  3. Remove the chicken wings from the marinade and pat dry. Cook the wings on the preheated grill, turning occasionally, until the chicken is well-browned and no longer pink, 25 to 30 minutes.
