Avocado and pineapple salad is a simple recipe that perfectly highlights the subtle creaminess of the avocados and the more assertive pineapple – that’s according to my lovely wife, who have fallen in love with this salad.
I personally find that pineapple together with avocado to be a strange mix for a salad – don’t get me wrong, I enjoy pineapple and avocado but just not together. Well what I can say my wife likes it, so maybe you might it too. Try it!
- 8 cups iceberg or other crisp lettuce
- 2 cups fresh pineapple chunks
- 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
- 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/3 cup white vinegar
- 1/3 cup fresh orange juice
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 2 medium avocados, sliced
- Fresh lime wedges
Toss together first 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk together oil and next 5 ingredients. Pour desired amount of dressing over salad mixture, and toss well. Spoon salad onto individual plates. Arrange avocado slices over salads; serve with lime wedges. Serve immediately.
