Cucumber, Tomato, Pineapple Salad

Contrary to what so many think, salads are not just for the Summer time. I personally like salad with my main meal which is dinner—I learned that from my Mom. I also learned that you don’t need too many ingredients to make a nice salad. I think that what really makes a good salad is it's dressing.


Ingredients
1 cucumber
2 large tomatoes (seeded)
1 can of pineapple (in chunks)
¼ cup of Balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 packet of Goya Salad & Vegetable Seasoning
Parsley flakes
Salt and pepper (optional)

Instructions
Salad
  1. Make ridges on cucumber and slice thinly.
  2. Cut open tomatoes and remove all seeds
  3. Drain the pineapple chunks.
  4. Arrange cucumber, tomatoes and pineapple on a platter.
  5. Sprinkle with dry parsley
Vinaigrette
  1. Combine balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and salad seasoning. Stir. Set aside and drizzle over salad as desired.
  2. Drizzle vinaigrette over salad
Note:
To make the ridges in the cucumber do the following: Wash cucumber thoroughly. Take a fork and pressing the fork against the peel of cucumber, run the fork downward all around. Slice cucumber in thin slices.
