PINEAPPLE-CUCUMBER SALAD

We took inspiration from our beloved national snack, chow. This salad is seasoned with chandon beni, garlic and pepper—the staples of an excellent chow. However, we sweetened it up with honey for an unexpectedly well-balanced flavour pop. The result is a versatile salad that can be used as a relish for burgers, salsa for grilled chicken or fish or just as a yummy side dish with your meal. You can chop the pineapples and cucumber smaller for a salsa dip for chips.
