Fresh Pineapple Red Pepper Salad


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!!

  3. You blended the red pepper and pineapple together in a food processor to make the dressing? Did you take that photo of the butter lettuce? If so, it's a work of art. What is up with your family?!

    Lay, thank you for your comments. I am so excited to see your "Bean Vermicelli". I hope you posted it. I love all your recipes.

    Shen, I blended the red pepper & pineapple in my small blender and it worked really well. You could use a food processor though. Yes, I did take the picture of the butter lettuce. Thank you for noticing, because I was so excited that it turning out. The lettuce was so beautiful, I just had to take a picture. My hubby & I are going out with friends tonight for Mexican Food-I should take some awesome pictures like you do....Have a wonderful weekend!
