Cuban Pineapple – Strawberry Salad | Vegan and GF Salad recipes | Summer recipes

Summer meals are salads mostly for us. While its not exactly summer in my country, it is so for most of the northern hemisphere. So, here is a quick salad thats apt for those potlucks / parties . With no slaving at the stove, this is a great make-ahead dish too. 

I adapted this from here, and substituted the protein (chicken)  with moong sprouts (yes, I promise – next time it shall be a larger portion :)) We loved it a lot and sure to make it the next time we have ripe sweet pineapples which are a must for this salad.

Funnily enough, my elder one who doesn’t like pineapples dug into this salad. Its quite catchy on the eye with its vibrant colours and I particularly liked this salad for the addition of scallions and some other flavouring.


Prep time : 15 mins , serves : 2

What you need

Pineapple cubes – 3/4 cup

Cubed strawberry  – 1/4 cup

Cucumbers (seedless) – cubed (1/4 cup)

Red peppers – 1/4 cup – I subbed with onions
