Tomato-and-Pineapple Salad with Garlic Chips
Roy Choi makes this tomato-and-onion salad as an homage to Hawaiian fruits and vegetables. "One thing many people don't know about Hawaii is that produce is really expensive there," he says. "There's not a lot of [arable] land. When you eat salad in Hawaii, it's not like it's from a buffet in Las Vegas--it's a special moment. A tomato is a big deal: It's one of hundreds, not thousands." Here, he thickly slices those tomatoes, tops them with slivers of sweet onion and spoons a pineapple-spiked soy dressing on top.
