About the recipe

I wanted to make a pineapple salsa type of salad but ended up trying something a little different. I opted to jmake a salad add minced onion, salt and pepper and let the pineapple marinate in the oniony salty juices for a couple of hours. The result is a delicious pineapple salad that tastes like its tossed in a sweet pineapple onion vinaigrette. Refreshing, cool, sweet and salty, this makes for a fabulous chilled salad on a warm summer day.

Serve it along side this other hearty easy to make cauliflower broccoli salad and you have two easy salads on one beautiful platter.
