Red onion and cilantro, along with a dash of lime juice roundup this salad to create the ultimate summer salad recipe! While the pineapple cucumber jalapeño salad is pretty straightforward and simple, try using the best produce you can find.

What to serve with the pineapple cucumber salad

This pineapple cucumber salad makes a great side for grilled fish or chicken. You can also enjoy with crisp pita chips, and – why not – a good quality hummus on the side.

Can we make the pineapple cucumber salad ahead of time?

Yes, this pineapple cucumber salad recipe tastes best when it’s made at least 15 minutes in advance and refrigerated to let the flavors meld together. Make sure the cucumbers don’t get soggy and stay crispy. If you’d like to make it the day before, prepare the cucumbers, pineapple, jalapeños and onions and toss with salt, pepper, lime juice and cilantro 15 minutes before serving.

How long to store the pineapple cucumber salad

The pineapple cucumber jalapeño salad can be served immediately after mixing all of your ingredients/dressing together, but we recommend covering it and placing in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes to allow the flavors to combine together. The pineapple cucumber salad can be kept in the refrigerator in an air-tight container for up to 3 days. When serving leftovers, give your ingredients a good stir before serving, as the juices have a tendency to settle to the bottom after a while.
