|French bread croutons/1/4 cup / 30 gram toasted pine nuts||1 Cup (16 tbs) (Adjust Quantity As Needed)|

|Cubed fresh pineapple||310 Gram (2 Cups)|
|Honey||80 Milliliter (1/3 Cup)|

Prepare croutons and set aside.
Place spinach in a very large bowl.
In a food processor or blender, combine pineapple, honey, salt, and red pepper.
Process until smoothly pureed; add water, a few drops at a time, if consistency is too thick. (At this point, you may cover and refrigerate spinach and dressing separately for up to 4 hours.)
