Ham and pineapple skewers

We had these for a picnic the other week- great idea! And loads of possible variation



  • 110g fresh pineapple
  • 4 thin slices of ham
  • ½ small red pepper
  • 60g Chinese leaves
  • 1 tbsp freshly chopped chives
  • 1 tsp dark soy sauce
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp clear honey
  • ½ tsp sesame oil
  • ½ tsp toasted sesame seeds (optional)


  1. Roughly chop the pineapple. Halve the ham slices and remove all visible fat. De-seed the pepper and chop. Thread the pineapple, pepper and 2 pieces of ham alternately on to 4 skewers.
  2. Shred the Chinese leaves and place in a lunchbox. Sprinkle with chives and arrange the skewers on top. Mix the remaining ingredients together and drizzle over the skewers just before serving (to prevent the leaves from becoming soggy).
