Pineapple Raita

Fresh pineapple tastes terrific in this twist on a traditional Indian condiment. But you can use canned, as well (use one tablespoon of the syrup in place of the sugar called for in the recipe). You can prepare this up to a day ahead; garnish with mint and peppercorns just before serving. Serve with grilled chicken and pita bread.
