Cajun meals in Louisiana often included pork sausage in gumbo or jambalaya. A salad of pineapple rings on top of a leaf of lettuce, and filled in with mayo and grated cheese, was often a perfect complement to the pork. In this recipe, I’ve taken the pineapple and crisp lettuce theme and made it fresher and a bit healthier. My guests and clients love this simple salad. During winter, when fresh pomegranates are available, toss the seeds in to add color, vitamins and a surprising burst of taste!
