Chili Pineapple

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Sackville

Chili, salt and pineapple is just one of those weird food combinations that really works. The chef who introduced me to this idea, Lindsey Bareham, recommends serving this recipe with drinks before dinner. To really make the dish shine you need to have a chilli with a bit of kick in it, although it doesn't have be one of the really firey ones like a habanero or bird's eye.

I am giving this five stars, because it is so different and really does work. had husband, 2 girlfriends and a 10 year old over this afternoon, and asked them to be testers. I sliced the chili very finely, and salted lightly, and it is incredible how the 3 flavors meld. I live in a place where pineapple is a common fruit, and I have always found them a little too sweet, but this takes the edge off. the chili I used was very hot, and we all took a mouthfull, chewed like crazy, and them had a drink :), but everyone agreed it was great, and we would do it again!!!!
