A quick, easy salad recipe for any occassion! This recipe is SPICY! If you prefer less spice, decrease the spicy elements.


  • 1/2 fresh pineapple
  • 10 oz bag of mixed greens (your favorite)
  • ¼ cup chopped green onion
  • 1/8 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 1/2 cucumber, diced
  • 1/8 cup chopped cilantro
  • Dressing:
  • 1 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 tsp chili oil
  • ½ tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1lime juiced
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp grated ginger
  • 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 small serrano pepper, diced


Step 1

Start by adding all ‘Dressing’ ingredients to a bowl. Wisk until mixed well, then refrigerate.

Step 2

Clean the pineapple and cut into pineapple steak pieces (or any size you want).

Step 3

Heat a large skillet (or use a BBQ). Add the pine apple and cook both sides about 5 minutes. You want a nice golden caramel color on the fruit

Step 4

When the pineapple is ready, remove from heat and allow resting for about 5 minutes.

Step 5

Add the greens, cilantro, mint, cucumber, and green onions to a large bowl. Add the desired amount of dressing. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes.

Step 6

Plate and place a few pineapple steaks across the top! Enjoy

Step 7

(to reduce the spice level, omit the serrano pepper and crushed red pepper)
