Pineapple:  Peel then core the pineapple.  Slice into ½ inch rounds then lightly brush with olive oil.  Grill over medium-high heat until lightly charred about 3-4 minutes per side.

Asparagus:   Trim off the tough ends.  Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with (Salt Sisters s.a.l.t. blend).   Place cross wise on the grill over medium-high heat, 6-8 minutes until lightly charred and tender.

Eggplant:  Cut eggplant into ½ inch rounds.  Brush both sides with olive oil and place directly on the grill.  Cook until nicely browned over medium-high heat, about 3-5 minutes on each side.

Corn:  Peel back the husk to remove the silk, then soak the ears for 5 minutes in cold water.  Smooth the husk back in place.  Grill the corn 15-20 minutes on medium heat, turning occasionally.
