Hi, today I am sharing a 5 Minute Pineapple Cucumber Salad. Another super quick and easy salad for the summer time.
This 5 Minute Pineapple Cucumber Salad can be eaten when ever you are hungry or served along side other dishes. No thinking is involved 🙂 Add more or less lime depending on how you like it and that goes for the mint leaves to.
I like to prepare this salad and have it in the fridge ready to eat for when I am feeling a little bit peckish :). I must say, I really like pineapple. However, the ones you get here in Italy are not like the one you get in South Africa. The ones we get at home are so so sweet and have that lovely pineapple smell and taste 🙂 . Towards the end of the year, in the shop that I shop at they normally get some pineapples from South Africa. They always tend to fall in to my shopping trolly.
When I go back home and it is pineapple season, I love to cut the pineapple in half, take a teaspoon and eat the pineapple straight out of the skin. It is really so so good 😉
Did you have a good weekend? It was my Birthday on Sunday so we went out for a lovely lunch to one of my favourite restaurants. It is my favourite as I think they do the best tortelli d’erbetta which is a pasta filled with a ricotta mix and greens (such as: swiss chard, spinach, herbs). They are so creamy and just melt away in your mouth.
I hope you have a good week and enjoy xx
