Method

    1. In a small bowl, whisk olive oil, honey and some of the pineapple juice; season with salt and pepper.
    2. Alternately thread pork, peppers, onions and pineapple onto skewers; season with salt and pepper.
    3. Heat a griddle pan to medium, oil lightly.
    4. Grill, brushing occasionally with honey mixture, until pork is cooked through and peppers begin to char, 10 to 15 minutes.
    5. To make the rice salad: In a large bowl combine all ingredients together up to and including the bacon bits.
    6. In a separate bowl mix together the dressing, sugar and soy sauce. Pour into the salad and toss. Chill before serving.

    • This recipe works well on a braai.
    • Chicken breasts or thighs can be used instead of the pork.
