Pineapple, Cucumber and Carrot Salad

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.
