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.

Banana & Lettuce Salad with a Chilli-Chocolate Dressing

Valentine's Day brings with it a whole gamut of giveaways on blogs - mostly chocolate. I even commented yesterday that chocolate has milk and hence is off-limits, in that I don't buy it myself. But if its offered to me for free, I figure its fair game. In that chocolate state of mind, this salad was born. My chocolate was not vegan, but I just used a couple of pieces, so don't have that much of a negative karma.

Carpaccio of Pineapple

Carpaccio (an appetizer of thinly sliced stuff, usually meat or fish) sounds like such a sophisticated term for what is, essentially, just sliced fruit. But astonishing as this association of fruit (pineapple), oil (olive oil), and spice (vanilla bean) is, they are in perfect harmony. And I dare you to not like it!
