Mint & Basil Pineapple Salad

Today I noticed the mint I am growing on my balcony has gone out of control! It must be the wonderful warm and rainy weather we are having this winter. Since I didn't have any rum for a mojito, I thought this salad would be a refreshing use for mint!

Dressing:

1/2 Tbs Rice Wine Vinegar
1 Tbs Soy Sauce
1/2 tsp Honey
few drops of Sesame Oil
dash Crushed Red Pepper (optional)

Salad:

5 Mint Leaves, finely chopped
5 Basil Leaves, finely chopped
1/4 c. Pineapple, cubed
1 think slice of Red Onion
few handfuls of Salad Greens

In the bottom of a big bowl, I usually use the bowl I'm going to eat out of, mix all the dressing ingredients together. Then add all the salad ingredients and toss! Voila!
