Zesty pineapple relish

Yield: 2 cups

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Diced fresh ripe pineapple
1 cup Diced peeled, seedless cucumber
¼ cup Diced red onion
1 teaspoon Minced fresh red chili pepper
½ teaspoon Grated lime zest
¼ cup Fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon Finely slivered fresh basil
1 tablespoon Coarsely chopped cilantro leaves

Sweet pineapple is enlivened by fresh, crisp cucumber spiced up with garlic, chilies and tangy lime juice. The heat of the chili is in the seeds and ribs, so remove them before mincing (wear rubber gloves).

1. Combine diced pineapple, cucumber and onion in a bowl. Mix gently.

2. Toss in minced chili, garlic, lime zest and lime juice. Cover and refrigerate up to 2 hours before use.

3. Add basil and cilantro just before serving. Serve chilled.
