Pineapple Cucumber Salad

While I was left with 1/2 the pineapple, which I brought 2 days back and a cucumber few days back, I thought to try this salad for this hot summer. In my childhood days, I remember tasting these spicy and sweet pineapples slices in the street side. These used to make slices and sprinkle some spicy powder. It tastes awesome and I am a great fan of it. Many of us might have tasted slitted cucumber with spicy powder sprinkled on it. I thought of making this, which I had tasted as two different snack. Just we need cut the cucumber and pineapple and then its done. Add salt when you are going to have it, else it will become watery. Kids who refuse to have fruits and vegetables will love this different combo, when served as salad.


Pineapple - 2 cups (cut to small pieces)
Cucumber - 1 (cut to small pieces)
Cilantro/Corriander leaves - few sprigs (chopped)
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - to taste


1) Place all the ingredients in a bowl.

2) Give a gentle toss and serve it immediately.

Sweet and spicy salad is ready in minutes.
