Description

Healthy and fresh salad!

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Pineapple
  • ½ cups Cherry Tomatoes
  • ½ cups Shrimp
  • 5 cups Salad Mix
  • 5 leaves Mint, Sliced
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Vinegar Or Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Chili Vincotto, Or Good Balsamic With Some Minced Chili Peppers

Preparation

Start by cutting the pineapple in half and removing the central part. This way you will have 2 empty pineapple “bowls” where we will serve our salad. Chop up the fruit and set aside.

Wash and cut in a half the cherry tomatoes. Boil the shrimp for about 5 minutes, then strain them and let them cool down. In a bowl place the salad mix, mint, tomatoes, pineapple and shrimp.

Dress it with salt, extra virgin olive oil, vinegar or lemon juice and vincotto. Vincotto is basically a stronger balsamic vinegar. The one I’m using has got a bit of a spice kick. If you can’t get your hands on something like that, you can replace it with good balsamic and some minced chili peppers.

Coat all the ingredients in this delicious dressing, and divide them into the 2 empty pineapple halves. Serve immediately!

I love this recipe! A great summer salad with the hint of mint and fresh pineapple. I kinda did my own thing with the shrimp but loved the combination of ingredients!
