Rainbow Salad| Weekend salad recipe

I came up with this recipe after thinking to myself how I could revitalize
the tedious green salad we’re all used to. I opened the fridge and found a variety of fresh vegetables that simply needed to be collaborated artistically .

This salad is made of a pineapple salsa in a bowl lined with lettuce, red onion slices and yellow lemon slices. It  is very important not to toss the salad as it destroys the beautiful composition you
would have created. 
This is a great salad you should definitely try out and it does not require a lot
of skill and time yet it looks highly impressive!

Total time: 25 minutes

Yield: a medium sized bowl of salad

  • 1 medium sized lettuce head
  • 1 large red tomato
  • 1 pineapple
  • 2 medium sized lemons
  • 2 medium sized red onions
  • 95 g Feta cheese or Greek mozzarella
  • 50 g fresh coriander
For the dressing
  • 6 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons water

  1. In a small bowl combine the mayonnaise, black pepper, lemon and granulated sugar.
  2. Gradually add the water whilst whisking vigorously, till it becomes smooth. Cover the dressing and put it aside.
  3. On a cutting board, cut the tomato in small cubes and one red onion and put the cubes in a medium sized bowl.
  4. Peel the pineapple and cut it into cubes and also cube the cheese and add them to the bowl.
  5. Squeeze half a lemon into the bowl, making sure that no seeds enter the bowl and add two pinches of black pepper. Make sure everything is well combined.
  6. Peel the lettuce leaves and wash them under cold running water.
  7. Slice the other red onion into rings as well as one lemon.
  8. Get the serving bowl and line it with the lettuce leaves, lemon slices, and red onion slices until it is completely covered (creating a ‘well’).
  9. Drizzle the salad dressing over the lettuce leaves, lemons and red onions. 
  10. Transfer the pineapple salsa from the small bowl into the bowl with the lettuce, lemons and red onions in the middle of the ‘well’ you created.
  11. Slice the remaining half of the lemon you used earlier on and neatly layer it around your bowl (see the picture of the salad at the top).
  12. Sprinkle the fresh coriander over the pineapple salsa and it will be ready to serve!
