I love it when I get creative and it turns out!!

We had family coming for dinner and the only veggies in the fridge were lettuce and three peppers (red, yellow and green). I decided to try something different when I realized I also had pineapple in my pantry.

Do you ever just kind of ‘know’ something will work – even when it doesn’t sound like it will? I had one of those moments with the peppers and pineapple. The salad was quite delicious. Here’s a rough idea (sorry, I didn’t measure) how it all came together . . .

Ingredients –
1 yellow pepper, 1 red pepper and 1 green pepper – seeded and thinly sliced then cut in half
1 can of pineapple chunks – cut the pineapple chunks in half, or not – reserve the liquid
feta cheese, crumbled and tossed through – a bit more for on top and presentation

Dressing – (amounts approximate)
2 parts rice wine vinegar
1 part olive oil
1 part pineapple juice
sugar, if needed, to add a bit more sweetness

Preparation –

  1. Prepare the veggies and pineapple and toss in a salad bowl.
  2. Prepare the dressing and shake well to blend.
  3. Pour dressing over salad and toss through, about one hour before dinner.
  4. Before serving add feta cheese and toss through.
  5. Add a bit of feta cheese to top of salad for presentation.
  6. Serve and enjoy

Serves 2 – 4
