Grilled Pineapple Salad | Easy salad recipes

grilled pineapple salad

Pineapple i love the most next to mangoes. Generally i like eating fruits,also i would love to add them in my salads too. Usually i add fresh pineapple cubes to my daily salad along with some cucumber, carrot, some legume (chick peas, red kidney beans..) lettuce, papaya, watermelon and some nuts. Every day i pack a big bowl of salad for suresh, for his evening snack and also i reserve  a portion from that  for me and kids to have in the evening . This grilled pineapple salad i have seen in a restaurant menu long back and suddenly while eating the pineapple in my salad, it came to my mind. So i made this today. While writing this post, i am enjoying a bowl of grilled pineapple salad too. This salad is similar to grilled pineapple salsa, so you can serve with tortillas too. Try this at home and let me know how they turned out. Check out my other salad recipes:

    1. It will ooze out liquid, if you are packing do not add salt to the salad. Also ensure it is kept in a air conditioned room
