A crunchy and juicy salad with a creamy dressing that blends in beautifully, the cabbage and pineapple salad is ideal for summer. The pineapple quenches thirst while the curd dressing cools you down. Mustard powder and dill leaves make the dressing spicy and flavourful, while crisp celery and capsicum add some texture and color to the salad bowl. As with most summer salads, this one too tastes best when served crisp and chilled.
