    cookiedog's Note:

    A healthy salad that will cool you down in the heat of summer. The combination of the ingredients are very refreshing. This recipe would be wonderful to take to a bar-b-que or as a side for burgers, ribs, grilled chicken or even Carne Asada.From "Tasty" by Roy Finamore.

      This salad was light and fresh. I used canned pineapple instead of fresh (all I had on hand) and only 1 1/4 TBS of olive oil, as I don't like my salads too oily (the juice from the pineapple coats everything nicely anyway). I really liked the idea of mixing veggies (cucumber) with fruit (pineapple) together- very clever! The mint gave it a nice kick. Served it with BBQ Mahi Mahi and it complemented the fish nicely. Thanks!

      This was good, but I wish I had peeled my cucumbers. They were a little bitter. I liked the mint with the cukes and the pineapple! Thanks! Reviewed for Healthy Choices ABC tag.

      Simple! Perfect! Delicious! I can't believe I've lived for 30 years without this salad. As a capsicum addict I had to add two fresh chopped serranos - an addition I highly recommend if you like a little spice in your life.
