Piquant Pineapple Salsa

The post title may say "salsa" but I'm having this for lunch as a salad. Very simple recipe with pineapple, cucumber, onion. The veggies are dressed in red wine vinegar, liquid jaggery, chilli flakes, basil, and garlic.

I love pineapple and I have one in my fruit bowl so this looks like a lovely salad/salsa to try. I think I will add some fresh mint as well as the coriander, as I have some, for extra freshness, thanks!!
