Pineapple Mango Daikon Salad

Chilled fresh pineapple topped with a mix of sweet (mango and honey) and heat (jalapeno and a little bite from the daikon radish and cilantro). This pineapple mango daikon salad is an excellent salad for a hot summer day. You can serve it with the pineapple chopped up, or use halved pineapple as a bowl as I did.

Pineapple Mango Daikon Salad

Can’t find daikon? You can make this with jicama instead. To make the pineapple halve I started with a fresh, perfectly ripe pineapple. I use a pineapple corer to remove the core. I found a great inexpensive corer over on Amazon. Then I cut off the rind and cut the pineapple in halves. It’s a quick way to make a ‘bowl’ for this or any fresh fruit-based salad.
