I did mention that I am going to share more salads from now on and will start with this scrumptious Tropical Vegetable Salad !

We eat loads of salads, especially during Spring and Summer, but salads are so versatile as a side dish during the colder months as well.

Usually, when I make comfort food, it is rich enough to be served on it’s own. Think stew on a bed of rice, meatballs with mashed potatoes and so on.

That is where a salad is perfect as a side, not as rich as a normal side dish, just a something extra.

I am sharing a recipe with you today which is full of vegetables, but with a delicious tropical taste – pineapple!

We have enjoyed this salad for many years, unchanged, which I found in the Eenskotteltreffers recipe book.

This is one recipe, which I feel is just right, no need to change, so we have it as is straight from the book.

I have also found that kids would rather eat their vegetables served s a salad, and this Tropical Vegetable Salad is always a hit with them.

Any leftovers ? Enjoy the salad for lunch the next day, either on it’s own, or with a roasted piece of chicken. Even deli meats go well with leftover salad.
