For summer eating, you don’t just want something filling— you want something refreshing! That’s why we’ve made this easy and cool combo of fresh pineapple and cucumber – along with some mint and zesty lime dressing – for a summer salad that’s anything but boring.
Not only is this Pineapple Cucumber Salad super easy to make – and beautiful to see! – it’s a simple way to combine a wide plethora of flavors, with the sweetness of the pineapple balancing the cucumber’s crunch and lime’s acidity. All together, it’s fresh summer heaven.
Feeling a little fancier than this simple salad? Then you’re in luck! This pineapple-and-cucumber combo is the perfect foundation for making more elaborate dishes— but only if you’re in the mood. Whatever your craving, this salad is going to taste great.
Of course, if you need suggestions, we’ve got a bunch! Try cilantro instead of mint. Get some cheese involved with some crumbled feta or queso fresco. Make it a more substantial main-dish meal by adding salad greens, grilled pork, or shrimp. The sky’s the limit, so use your favorite flavors and imagination.
