We love the burst of flavor this simple snack provides.
- 1/2 a ripe pineapple, peeled and cored
- Kosher salt
- Cayenne pepper
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
- Lime wedges
Cut the pineapple into bite size wedges or slices.
Put the salt, cayenne pepper, mint, cilantro, and limes into small bowls. Squeeze a bit of lime juice onto the fruit. Then lightly dip the pineapple into a little salt and as much cayenne as you like and finish with the mint and cilantro.
Cook's Note: For true Southeast Asian taste add a little bowl of fish sauce to your options of dippers.
