Pineapple Salad

Where Mom came up with this salad, we will never know. She can't seem to remember. But it's so simple and fresh you can't help but love it on a hot summer evening. It's great with a steak dinner, meatloaf or chicken. I love it for lunch when its hot and I want something light.
It's different but everyone who's tried it is pleasantly surprised and asks for more.
