  • 1/2 fresh serrano chile, diced
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons mint leaves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon basil leaves, chopped
  • juice of 1 key lime
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 ounces macadamia nuts, chopped coarsely
  • 1 ripe pineapple, peeled and diced
  • 1 pinch granulated sugar
  • Cayenne pepper to taste


  1. Combine tomatoes with serrano chile, green onions, mint, and basil.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk lime juice with olive oil and drizzle over tomato mixture. Add macadamia nuts and pineapple, then season with sugar and cayenne pepper. Stir well, but gently so you don’t break up the fruit.
