Pineapple + Basil + Cucumber

Recipe Source:  ?
Serves:  4

Grill pineapple to give it a charred touch before tossing it with basil and cucumber.  Good with grilled shrimp.

1.  Heat grill to high.

2.  Cut 1/2 cored pineapple into 1/3-inch-thick-half- or quarter-moons.

3.  Grill until grill marks appear, about 2 minutes per side.  Let cool.

4.  Toss with 1 small cucumber, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced on the bias, 1/2 cup basil leaves (torn if large), 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, and 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt.

5.  Sprinkle with freshly ground pepper.
