Pineapple Cream Cheese Salad

I love fresh fruits in salad, that sweetness and citrusy juices of fruits give flavors of salad a punch; Pear, Pineapple, Apple, Globe Grapes and Raw Papaya are few fruits that always make a delicious salad. Cream Cheese or Sour Cream has a zingy taste, which compliments sweetness of Pineapple perfectly, and crunchiness of vegetables make this salad hard to resist.


For Salad:
1 Cup Pineapple, cut into wedges
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 tomato, seeded and cut into cubes
1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and cubed
3 – 4 Lettuce Leaves, tear into bite size pieces
3 – 4 Spring Onion Greens, cut into finger size
1 Slice of Whole Wheat Bread
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Garlic Powder

For Salad Dressing:
4 Tbsp Mustard Oil
2 Tbsp White Wine Vinegar
1 Tsp Lemon Juice
Salt and Black Pepper, as per taste

For Garnish:
A fistful of flat parsley
Heaped Spoonful of Cream Cheese


For making the dressing, whisk in all the ingredients in a bowl. Adjust the seasoning as per taste and keep aside.
Pulse bread slice once in food processor to make coarse bread crumbs.
Heat pan and drizzle olive oil, toss bread crumbs until crispy and sprinkle garlic powder. Mix nicely.
In a large bowl mix in pineapple, onion, tomato, cucumber and greens.
Pour dressing over the salad and gently toss with fingers.
Just before serving sprinkle roughly chopped parsley, garlic bread crumbs and drizzle generous helping of cream cheese over the salad.
