Pineapple Ginger Habanero Salsa

This may be my favorite salsa recipe ever - it's that good.  And I love salsa, so that's saying a lot.  It's also colorful and unique!

2 tablespoons ginger root, peeled and diced
4 green onions, tops and bottoms, finely chopped
Juice of 4 limes
1 medium red onion, finely diced
1 ripe whole pineapple, sliced and grilled until tender, then diced
1 habanero chile, minced (or add to taste until as spicy as desired)
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Corn tortilla chips, for serving
Directions: Peel the pineapple and grill in large segments until soft.  Dice and add to a bowl.  Throw in the rest of the vegetables, the lime juice and oil and season to taste.  Add additional habanero if desired... that stuff is potent, so be careful!

Serve on tortilla chips or with tacos.  I have had this on pork tostadas and with shrimp tacos and it was fantastic either way (and by itself!).  Yum!  Enjoy!

Note:  The grilled fresh pineapple is the key to this recipe, so don't even think about using canned ; )
