Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a grill to medium-high. Place a grill pan on the grill rack. Leaving the root and stem ends intact, cut onion into quarters.

  • Grill onion wedges and jalapeños on grill rack 5 minutes, turning to brown evenly. Add garlic and strawberries to hot grill pan. Grill 5 minutes (10 minutes total for onion and jalapeños), turning frequently, until slightly charred. Transfer strawberries and vegetables to a cutting board; let cool.

  • When cool enough to handle, coarsely chop strawberries and onion. Peel garlic. Finely chop jalapeños (if you like, remove and discard seeds) and garlic. In a bowl combine berries, onion, jalapeños, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Cover and chill 1 hour. If you like, top with chopped peanuts. Serve over grilled chicken or shrimp, or with tortilla chips. Makes 3 1/2 cups.
