Pineapple with Lemon Basil
Cut off the rind and chop into segments:
a fresh pineappple
Toss together with:
4 - 8 T sugar, depending on the sweetness of the pineapple
1/3 c fresh lemon basil, chopped
Let sit or serve immediately.
Notes & Variations:
  1. The lemon basil adds an elegant flavor to the fruit. It is best to prepare this in advance: the longer it sits, the better it gets.
  2. Add some fresh berries. Blackberries are particularly good; strawberries or blueberries also work well.
  3. In fact, you can use any type of fruit. Try to keep the combination simple, though, and have no more than two varieties of fruit.
