fresh pineapple in 1/4-inch dice
extra virgin olive oil
seedless cucumber, cut into 1/4-inch dice
red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch dice
onion, cut into 1/4-inch dice
medium garlic cloves, minced
jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
fresh lime juice
chopped fresh parsley, basil or cilantro
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
This recipe was all right. The taste was really good, but the texture was kind of a turn off. So I ended up throwing it all in the blender and pureeing it. Consistency is much better. I used fresh cilantro, as that is what I had around the house. It was very refreshing, but I don't know if I'll make it again.
I added a couple of pears and pureed a portion of the red pepper,pineapple, and pears. The appearance is very enticing.
This is about a 3.5 or so. Tasty. I also pureed all the ingredients as I despise chunky gazapachos. I strained it as well and then then added back about half of the pulp to the liquid portion. Very spicy at first. Chill for best results.
