The bright, fresh flavors of this colorful Cuban salad beautifully counter the richness of grill-roasted pork. Since they grow there, Florida avocados are favored in Cuba, but Hass avocados work well, too.

Delicious side dish for ropa vieja, though it can be hard to get the pineapple and avocado perfectly ripe at the same time. This is a VERY big salad as written, but is very yummy. Needed a bit more salt, to my taste. I only used half a habanero because I was nervous of the heat and I'm glad I didn't use more. Next time I might use jalapeno instead for more chile flavor with less heat. Very tasty and pretty even without the tiling that the food stylist did.
I have made this salad a couple of times over the year as and it is always a hit.
Excellent salad! Everyone loved it.
