1/4 cup olive oil

2 tablespoons lime juice 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 large Florida avocados, peeled, pitted and diced 

1 small red onion, thinly sliced 

One 2-pound pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into 1-inch slices 

1 bunch watercress

1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves 


  1. In a bowl, combine the olive oil and lime juice and season with salt and pepper. Add the avocados and red onions to the bowl and gently coat with the lime dressing. Set aside.
  2. Prepare a grill (or griddle) for medium-high heat. Grill the pineapple slices until grill marks appear, about 2 minutes each side.
  3. To assemble the salad, start with the watercress, then alternate the avocado and red onion mixture with the grilled pineapple. Drizzle the remaining dressing over the salad. Sprinkle the cilantro leaves on top.
