I love this simple, refreshing Pineapple Red Pepper Salad with butter lettuce. The salad dressing is made from just blending the fresh pineapple and red pepper together-it doesn't get any easier than this. Delicious and so healthy. Everything blends so well for easy digestion. The butter lettuce I purchased still had it's dirt & roots attached-so cool and almost garden fresh. (see picture) You can also use some of the fresh pineapple to make a smoothie to serve with it. Delicious!!
Pineapple Red Pepper Salad
1 large head of butter lettuce
1 cup pineapple (diced)
1/4 cup red pepper (diced)
1 cup walnuts (break into small pieces)
4 oz. pineapple
4 oz. red bell pepper
Cut butter lettuce into smaller pieces and place in bowl. Add diced pineapple & red pepper. Prepare dressing by blending pineapple & red bell pepper in blender. Pour dressing on salad and garnish with walnuts or your nut of choice.
