Griddled pineapple, radish, ricotta & chilli salad

Updated: Jul 14

Pineapple on pizza, pineapple in a cocktail, pineapple in salad. Pineapple is the most delicious of all fruits. It deserves its place anywhere in my humble opinion.



This recipe is a fab summer salad, it's so easy to knock up (takes approximately 3 minutes) and goes really well with strong flavours at a bbq, for example sticky spicy asian flavoured meat.


Make sure you generously dress it with lime, olive oil and chilli - it can handle a kick.

Serves 3 (as a side)


Ingredients:


  • Half a pineapple

  • 1 bag of rocket

  • 1 small pot of ricotta

  • Handful of radish

  • Pine nuts

  • 1 lime

  • Olive oil

  • 1 fresh chilli or 1 tablespoon lazy chilli












Method:

  • Set up your platter with the washed rocket, sliced radish and crumbled ricotta

  • Slice the pineapple into thin segments and roast on a griddle for about 3 minutes with a drizzle of oil

  • Once the pineapple has a touch of colour they are ready, take off and immediately put the hot pineapple in the salad (it will slightly melt the ricotta - delicious)

  • Toast the pine nuts and add to to the salad

  • To make your dressing, in a bowl mix lime juice, chilli and a good slug of oil - cover salad with dressing

  • Season & serve
