Fresh pineapple is the perfect compliment to chili pepper and lime juice, refreshing and spicy


  • 3 cups Fresh Pineapple (Look for baby gourmet pineapples, can also use frozen)
  • 1 English cucumber (peeled, can also use a regular cucumber)
  • 1/2 Onion (peeled)
  • 1 Chili Pepper (remove seeds and membranes or leave for more heat)
  • 1 clove Garlic (peeled)
  • 1/4 cup Cilantro (leaves and stems loosely packed)
  • 1 Lime (fresh squeezed)
  • dash Celtic Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt
  • dash Fresh Ground Pepper
  • GarnishCucumber, diced (reserve a small piece and leave the skin on)


Step 1.
Remove pineapple top, rind, and core. Cut into large chunks. Add all ingredients to blender or food processor and mix until smooth. Refrigerate until chilled.
Step 2.
Ladle into small serving dishes or "shot" glasses for food tastings. Garnish by adding a small spoonful of extra virgin olive oil to the middle of each serving then float diced cucumber pieces with the skin on in it.
