|A small pineapple farm near my hometown|
1 medium pineapple
2 green chillies (I used one green and the other ripe for the visual appeal)
The juice from a quartered lemon
Salt to taste
Sugar as per taste (optional)
A few sprigs of mint leaves (you can chop them up)
1 tsp black sesame seeds toasted and lightly crushed
Using a sharp knife, remove the ends of the pineapple. Peel off the skin and remove 'eyes'. Halve the fruit and cut into slices. Remove the hard core and dice the fruit into bite-size pieces. Do the same with the other half.
Pour the lemon juice over the diced pieces. Season with salt. Chop the chillies and add them. Scatter the chopped mint leaves.
Give the salad a good mix and transfer the contents to a serving bowl.
Sprinkle the sesame seeds on top and if you like, decorate with a few more sprigs of mint.
This is a refreshing in-between snack. If the pineapple is sweet, you can leave out the sugar.
