Pineapple Cucumber Salad

The other day I saw lots of round reddish pineapples hoarded on a pulling cart. Usually, we get green or yellowish green oblong fruits here in Chennai, so this one caught my eyes and the lady selling them told me an interesting information (I believe it is a fact): the pineapples we get in supermarkets(those green yellow oblong ones) are from Kerala and that they are not of premium quality while reddish rounder ones she had were from Kolli hills and are sweet and flavorful. I got one home and on the way I started planning what recipes would I try out with this flavorsome fruit. I tried a whole four recipes with one fruit, yes 4! This one’s the first… “Most Refreshing Salad I’ve ever had!” – by TH n me BLUSH! 🙂
