Adapted from and originally published the June 2006 issue of Gourmet magazine. This Vietnamese-inspired salad combines sweet pineapple and fiery serrano with cooling cucumber. This is a great side for RiffRaff's Grilled Vietnamese Chicken (Grilled Vietnamese Chicken).

Yummo!!! Just threw this together at the last minute and - what a great salad! It was super easy and super fresh. Went a bit heavier with the fish sauce because we like the flavor, and used regular tomatoes because we can't get cherry tomatoes here. This is the most wonderful blend of flavors!!!
