Pineapple Salsa/Salad

Pineapplesalsa
HNCWinnerSept2009
We are happy to announce We won Yasmeen’s  HealthNut Challenge – Well balanced 3 Course meals. Thanks Yasmeen for coming up with such an awesome theme.

Now let  us get on to our recipe, pineapple is such a perfect juicy fruit with its a vibrant tropical flavor that balances the tastes of sweet and tart. Pineapple is available year around at a very nominal price. I  made this salad with the leftover pineapple and few of the veggies in hand and it tastes delicious. Try out this flavorful salsa and you are sure to love it.

Know what you Eat - Pineapple is an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese. Vitamin C is the body's primary water-soluble antioxidant, defending all aqueous areas of the body against free radicals that attack and damage normal cells. It is also a good source of vitamin B1, vitamin B6, copper and dietary fiber.

Hi Sadhana, just popping over from Jacqui's NCR round up to take a closer look at your salad. It's getting really cold here (hence all the UK entries being soup!) so I'll have to tag it for next year :o) cheerio, Nic @ nipitinthebud
