Method

  1. Use a sharp knife to top and tail the pineapple, then stand it upright on a chopping board. With the sharp knife, carve the skin away and discard. Rest the pineapple on its side, then cut into wafer-thin slices. Repeat with the grapefruit, cutting away the peel and pith, then cut into slices. Arrange the fruit on a serving platter, catching any juices, and set aside.
  2. Using a pestle and mortar, pound the sugar and mint together until completely blended. Scatter the mint sugar over the fruit and serve with yogurt.

This is from Jamie Olivers 30 minute meals. I used sliced pineapple with the core removed. Very quick, easy and tasty as well as refreshing.

This is a great dessert, easy, healthy and a nice alternative if serving another richer pudding. Grind the mint and sugar at the last minute as it can lose some of the fresh taste if you do it too early.

If you don't like the bitterness of grapefruit, this is really good using pineapple only. I cut it length ways in thin carpaccio strips, I think from a Jamie Oliver recipe. It's just perfect after a hot curry or a summer BBQ very refreshing.

Great idea, children and husband really enjoyed it, would make great end to a summer lunch.
However although the whole pineapple slices looked great the tough core was quite unpalatable.
