Grilled Pineapple Salad with Coconut and Lime Dressing

Prep Time
Total Time


For the Salad

  • 1 medium pineapple
  • 4 handfuls mix leaf salad
  • 4 handfuls fresh spinach
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 medium avocados
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained
  • ½ cucumber

For the Dressing

  • 4 tablespoons coconut milk
  • Juice squeezed from 1 lime
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • Pinch of desiccated coconut
  • Drizzle of harissa 


Start making the salad by peeling the pineapple and cutting it into 16–20 long slices. Put a grill pan over medium heat (no need for oil) and wait 2–3 min until hot, then put the sliced pineapple on top and grill for about 3 min on each side. Take off the heat and set aside.

Prepare the rest of the ingredients; peel and slice the avocados, finely slice the onions, slice the cucumber and cut it into half-moons. Drain the chickpeas and set aside.

Prepare 4 serving plates and put one handful of mixed leaf salad and one handful of spinach on each plate. Divide the onions, avocado, cucumber, and chickpeas into four equal parts and put a portion of each on each plate.

Make the dressing by mixing coconut oil with lime juice, mustard, and salt. Drizzle it on top of the salad. Then sprinkle a pinch of desiccated coconut on top of each plate and finish with a drizzle of harissa.
