This is a great Cuban salad that blends the sweetness of pineapple with the sour flavor of oil and vinegar. 

Make sure to use an extra virgin olive oil and don't forget to salt and pepper the dressing.

Ingredients:

  • 1⁄3; cup olive oil
  • 1⁄3; cup vinegar
  • 1⁄3; cup orange juice
  • 1⁄3; cup sugar
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce , shredded
  • 2 cups of fresh ripe pineapple chunks
  • 1 medium red onion , sliced thin
  • 1 large florida avocado , peeled and sliced
  • fresh lime

Directions:

Combine olive oil, vinegar, orange juice, and sugar in a blender until smooth. Add salt and pepper to this mixture to taste. Lightly toss the lettuce, pineapple, and red onion together. Pour on the oil and vinegar mixture until everything is well coated. Adjust the amount used to your own preference, more or less.

Garnish individual salads with several avocado slices lightly seasoned with salt and pepper and a squeeze of lime juice.
