Cucumber Salad With Pineapple and Jalapeno

Cucumber Salad With Pineapple and Jalapeno created by cookiedog

This is my favorite cucumber salad. It's really refreshing served with a spicy entree. I do cut back to about 1/2 cup sugar and like to use black sesame seeds to give it another dash of color. From the RSVP section of Bon Appetit magazine.

    Very tasty salad. I decreased the sugar as suggested and added a touch more salt.

    Fabulous Salad! I doubled the amount of pineapple and just couldn't get enough. This would be great served at a barbque but I plan on making it all summer long. ZWT 4 Go Jefes!

    Very attractive visually, but the dressing really was not to my taste - sweet enough to be cloying, yet harsh from the white vinegar. I might try this same combination of fruit and vegetables, with maybe a splash of rice wine.

    Lovely refreshing salad! I did take your suggestion and cut down the amount of sugar. Made for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers during ZWT 4
