Ingredients

1 pineapple 2 kg
1/3 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed 1 orange
2 tsp gingerroot, peeled and grated 9 g
10 leaves fresh mint 0.4 g

Method

  1. Trim the pineapple, removing all the 'eyes' or small brown spots. Cut off its bottom part and stand it upright. Cut thin slices from all four sides till you reach the core. Cut these slices into pieces and put them in a bowl.
  2. Mix the orange juice, ginger and chopped mint leaves, keeping aside some full leaves for garnishing. Pour onto the pineapple.
  3. Chill for at least 1 hour. Serve the salad plain or drizzled with honey and topped with mint leaves.
