This salad is very similar to a Singaporean Indian pickles dish called Achar, but it is not spicy. It includes the same ingredients, i.e. pineapples, cucumbers, carrots and peanuts but I added black sesame seeds, white sesame seeds and poppy seeds to it. I made this salad for my recent Hawaiian dinner with friends and it was a very popular dish. This is a great dish for hot summer days.
2 Organic Pineapples, cut into small wedges
1 English Cucumber, sliced thinly diagonally
1 Carrot, cut into strips
1/4 cup of Rice Vinegar
1/8 cup of Brown Sugar
1 tablespoon of Sesame Seed Oil
4 tablespoons of Roasted Crushed Peanuts (Optional: Omit peanuts if anyone eating it has a peanut allergy)
4 shakes of Poppy Seeds
1 tablespoon of Black Sesame Seeds
1 tablespoon of White Sesame Seeds
1 teaspoon of Hot Chilli Flakes (Optional: if you don’t like it spicy)
Mix everything well in a large mixing bowl and transfer into a pretty salad bowl.
