Thai Pineapple and Peanut Salad


1 person made this

I made this recipe based on a dish I once ate in Thailand. It is deliciously sweet, salty and sour. Make this salad as hot or mild as you like by adjusting the amount of chillies you use.

Serves: 4 

  • 1 pineapple, cut into 2cm cubes
  • 200g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 eschalot, chopped finely
  • 4 tablespoons roasted peanuts, lightly crushed
  • 1 bunch mint, finely chopped
  • 4 Thai chillies, chopped finely
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 piece palm sugar, crushed

Preparation:15min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. In a large bowl, combine the pineapple, cherry tomatoes, eschalot, peanuts, mint and chillies.
  2. In a small bowl, combine lime juice, soy sauce and palm sugar. Mix well and stir through the salad.
  3. Serve the salad with jasmine rice.


This recipe is vegetarian but if you want to make the salad more authentic to Thai cuisine, you can add 1 tablespoon fish sauce to the dressing.

This is such a fresh, satisfying summer meal. I love to make this very, very hot with Thai chillies. Top of the meal by serving it with some drinking coconuts. - 21 Jun 2012
