Black Bean, Grilled Pineapple, Cucumber Salad

Give your carne asada guests a side salad they’ll devour. This unique Mexican dish is part cucumber salad recipe, part black bean salad recipe. Grilled pineapple delivers a touch of sweetness to black beans, crisp cucumbers and the subtle zesty flavors of lime and HERDEZ® Salsa Verde. It’s a quick salad you can throw together that everyone will love.

Grilling Tip: Slices of ripe pineapple work best. (They should feel bendable but not mushy.) Grill them on medium-high heat until you can see the grill lines (4 minutes each side).
