Greens Salad with Roasted Pineapple, Manchego & Jamon Serrano

As the warmer weather approaches, we've created this refreshing pineapple dish with a Spanish twist!

    Here's what you'll need:

    • 1 pineapple
    • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
    • Salt
    • Pineapple habanero hot sauce
    • 1 tbsp sugar or honey
    • Olive oil
    • Mixed baby greens
    • Good quality Manchego cheese (shaved)
    • Thinly shaved Serrano ham 
    • Marcona almonds (crushed)
    • Good quality cold pressed extra virgin olive oil (if available, use first cold pressed)
    • Fresh lemon or white wine vinegar


    1. Preheat oven to 450 F or 400 F in a convection oven
    2. Clean pineapple of skin and core
    3. Cut into large lengthwise pieces (you should end up with about 8 large divided pieces)
    4. Season with light olive oil, salt and garlic
    5. Place on a sheet tray with a baking rack or sheet tray lined with parchment paper
    6. Bake in the oven for 30 mins, flipping 3 to 4 times total and ensure all sides are getting a golden colour (OPTIONAL: alternatively, you can grill these and finish in the oven)
    7. Cool at room temperature and cut into small bite size chunks and refrigerate
    8. Before serving, season the pineapple with a little bit of salt and a splash of pineapple habanero hot sauce

    The final steps:

    1. In a bowl combine: mixed greens, some Marcona almonds, some Serrano ham, a pinch of salt, a pinch of black pepper, light drizzle of the olive oil, light squeeze of lemon juice (or white wine vinegar), mix salad and set aside
    2. Arrange some pineapple chunks (which has been seasoned with Pineapple Habanero Hot Sauce, refer to the 'Method' section above for instructions) and Serrano ham at the bottom of the plate 
    3. Plate the salad over the pineapple chunks and Serrano ham
    4. Garnish with Manchego cheese and more Marcona almonds and finish with a light drizzle of olive oil
