Easy Cooling Caribbean Side Salad

Looking for a fresh and cooling summer side dish but tired of all the same salads?

This Caribbean salad features cucumber, pineapple, and tomato and all are so cooling on those hot days we have been having. As an extra boost to the coolness, this side dish also features mint.

This salad is great alongside jerk chicken and rice and beans.


  • 1 ea. small pineapple
  • 2 ea. vine tomatoes
  • 2 ea. cucumbers
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint
  • Salt to taste



Get a large bowl ready to mix all the ingredients. Wash all produce. Peel, core and cut pineapple into small cubes and place into a bowl. Continue to cut cucumber and tomatoes into similar small cubes and add it into the bowl. It is optional to leave the cucumber skin on. Next, chop mint and add into the mixing bowl. And finally add a little salt to your liking.

Serves 4
