- Make the Pineapple Salsa: In a medium bowl, combine the pineapple, red onion, red bell pepper, cilantro, jalapeno, and lime juice. Mix well and season with salt. Set aside for the flavors to meld.
- Prepare the Grill: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
- Season and Grill the Patties: Season the ground beef with salt and pepper, then shape it into four equal-sized patties. Grill the patties for about 4-5 minutes per side or until they reach your desired level of doneness.

Place a lettuce leaf on top, followed by a grilled burger patty, a slice of Swiss cheese, a slice of grilled ham, and a generous spoonful of pineapple salsa. Drizzle with teriyaki sauce (if using) and top with the other half of the bun.
- Serve: Serve the Aloha Burgers immediately with your favorite sides, such as grilled vegetables, coleslaw, or potato salad.
