Grilled Pineapple Salad

Author: Canadian Living

This pineapple salad takes its cue from the popular sweet and tangy green mango salad in Thai restaurants.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pineapple
  • 1 sweet red pepper diced
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint
Dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 dash hot pepper sauce

Method

Dressing: In small saucepan, heat sugar, oil, lime juice, fish sauce, garlic and hot pepper sauce over medium heat, stirring occasionally, just until sugar is dissolved. Let cool completely.

With sharp knife, cut off crown and base of pineapple; cut off skin. With tip of knife, remove pineapple eyes; cut pineapple crosswise into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices. Place on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and cook, turning once, for 20 to 30 minutes or until tender and browned. Let cool.

Cut each slice into quarters, trimming off core; place in large bowl. Add dressing, red pepper, onion, coriander and mint; toss to coat well. (Salad can be covered and refrigerated for up to 8 hours; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.)
