Mixed Greens with Grilled Pineapple and Walnuts

September 19, 2010

I love salads with some type of fresh fruit and make quite a few different ones.  I serve a lot of grilled pineapple either with meats or for desserts, but don’t forget about it in plenty of salads.  If you don’t have fresh pineapple I have had many successes with canned as well.  When you have fresh pineapple grill some extra for the next day for a salad and it is a welcome addition to a simple plate of greens.

Mixed Greens with Grilled Pineapple and Walnuts

  • 4 Cups Mixed Greens (washed and dried)
  • 4 Spears of Grilled Pineapple (grilled and cut into 1″ squares, then chilled)
  • 1/2 C. Chopped Walnuts (toasted)

  2. Add grilled pineapple and chopped walnuts 
  3. Drizzle dressing on top
