Step 1

Cut pineapple in half with a sharp knife. Using a paring knife, carefully remove the core. With a mellow baller hallow out one half to create a serving bowl and set aside. Trim the top and the outer layer off of the other half and removed the core, keeping the fruit in a large piece.

Heat grill to medium. Place the pineapple bowl face down on the grill for about 5 minutes or until grill marks have formed on the top. Grill the large pieces of pineapple for about 5 minutes on each side or until slightly tender. Allow the pineapple bowl and grilled fruit to cool.

Seed and dice cucumber and pepper and place in a large mixing bowl. Dice pineapple and onion and add to the mixture. Rough chop the mint and cilantro and toss with the salad.

In a small bowl, whisk together lime juice, sugar, and salt & pepper. Pour over salad and toss to coat. Spoon into pineapple bowl to serve. Refill the bowl as needed.
