Hawaiian pineapple spicy mint salsa

Inspired from my trip late last year this is a beautiful fresh and spicy salsa with pineapple and fresh herbs that can be served with fish or chicken.

1 small pineapple, cut into small cubes
2 cucumbers, peeled and cut into small cubes
1 packet of baby cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
1/4 bunch fresh mint leaves, chopped
1/4 bunch coriander, leaves picked and left whole

Prepare all the above and put in a salad bowl


1 garlic clove grated
1 small piece ginger grated
1 small red chilli, deseeded and diced very small
3 limes, juiced
either : 1 tablespoon fish sauce or 1 tablespoon tamari

Combine all the above and dress the salad 1 hour before serving.
