Servings 4


  • dressing
  • 3 small garlic cloves
  • 3/4 cup neutral tasting oil
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar or rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon ground chile ancho
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons agave nectar optional
  • salad
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 11/2 cup black beans
  • 4 large handfuls of mixed greens
  • 4 slices of pineapple
  • chopped cilantro


  • To make the dressing blend the garlic, oil, vinegar, orange juice, chili powder and salt in a blender. Add the agave nectar in the end and after testing, add it only if you feel that it needs some sweetness. Test for seasoning and add more salt if needed.
  • Add the pineapple slices on a grill or grilling pan over the stove for about 15 minutes on each side. What you want is to get them lightly browned. When done dice them.
  • To serve, divide the mixture of green leaves, rice and beans into 4 bowls (bowls). Finish each dish with diced pineapple and chopped cilantro, drizzle the dressing over the whole thing.
