I love this salad, it is such a crowd pleaser.   It is so refreshing, appetizing, colorful and delicious.  You can serve it as an appetizer, a salad and take out the onions and you can serve it as a sweet at the end of a heavy meal.  It adds such a splash of color onto your dining table and the fresh pineapple just makes your mouth water.

½ English Cucumber, peeled and diced
½ Pineapple, peeled and diced
1 red hot pepper,(Thai bird chilli or jalapaeno finely diced)
1 small red onion, peeled and sliced
3 – 4 sprigs of mint

3 Tbs. lime juice
2 Tbs. sugar
½ tsp. salt  (give it a Thai twist add 1-2 Tbs. of fish sauce instead of lime)
1-2 tsp. minced garlic (optional)

Dilute sugar and salt with a whisk in lime juice to make the dressing.

Combine all ingredients in salad bowl and toss well.
