Pineapple Floats When I used to work at Disney World at Aloha Isle in the Magic Kingdom, we served pineapple floats made out of Dole pineapple juice and Dolewhip (a non-dairy based frozen treat only sold at Disney World and the Dole factory in Hawaii). I re-created my own with fresh pineapple juice and scoops of vanilla ice cream. Adds fresh chunks of pineapple and chocolate syrup for somthing extra special. Serve in a chilled mug with a straw, spoon, and cocktail umbrella.

Simplicity at it's finest. Fresh pineapple cored and cut length wise into thin quarters Sprinkle with a little sea salt and grill. Plate and drizzle with ginger syrup and wildflower honey. Garnish with edible flowers. Made this the other night all with products from WF. Amazing.

Great childhood memories of this one..great on any day with some yellowtail chardonnay 1lb skinless chicken breasts 1 20oz can of pineapple slices (can use less or more depending on the size of the chicken breasts) Mayonnaise to taste (DO NOT USE SUBSTITUTE) Cut chicken breasts about 3/4 inch thick portions. "Beat them" as my mother says. The longer you do this, the more tender the chicken will be and the more juices will get absorbed. Then, apply a generous amount of mayo to the chicken on all sides. Finally, put a desired amount of pineapple slices on top and cover them with mayo. Put on lightly greased pan (the mayo is great grease as it is) and bake at 425 until chicken is fully cooked. The baked mayonnaise is delicious, so feel free to pick some off the cooled pan for yourself ;)

I love fresh pineapple chunks, diced tomatoe, and cilantro mixed together. I used it as a side dish or chop the pineapple & tomatoes smaller and serve over tilapia.

My favorite pineapple recipe is: fresh pineapples cut into chunks, I add cherries, splenda to retard the tartness and lastly add some fresh plums. It's great!! Enjoy

I like to combine fresh pineapple cut into chunks, as much of the juice from the pineapple as I can catch when cutting it, barbecue sauce, and boneless skinless chicken cut into strips or bite sized pieces. I make the mix to taste, and bake until the chicken is cooked. I serve it with white rice cooked with sliced red bell pepper, and veggies. Makes for a great, easy, meal!

Marinated Grilled Pineapple Spears Simple, delicious, elegant, versatile and always a winner! 1 Whole Trade pineapple - cored and cut into spears 1/4 c real maple syrup 1/4 c balsamic vinegar 1 T cold-pressed sesame oil Combine all ingredients and allow to marinate for 2 or more hours (prep these in the morning to enjoy at an afternoon or sunset gathering) Grill on med-high for 3-4 minutes, flip, grill 3-4 more minutes, remove and enjoy the juicy flavor burst. These marinated grilled pineapple spears are terrific served with almost any bbq'd meat or fish, provide a great addition to a grilled veggie dinner, a yin-yang sensation alongside sushi, or a hit by topping ice cream with warm spears for a special dessert. Cheers!

Roasted Pineapple with Thyme-Ginger Ice Ingredients * 1 teaspoon thyme leaves, plus small sprigs for garnish * 2 bottles, 12 ounces each, ginger beer or all-natural ginger soda * 1 whole pineapple, peeled, eyes removed, and sliced into 8 even slices * Vegetable oil * 1 tablespoon sugar * Kosher salt Directions Scatter the thyme leaves among the compartments of 2 large ice cube trays. Fill the trays with ginger beer and freeze at least 6 hours and preferably overnight. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Put the pineapple slices on a nonstick baking sheet. Brush both sides very lightly with vegetable oil and sprinkle them evenly with the sugar; sprinkle very lightly with salt as well. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and flip the slices. Put in the oven and continue roasting until they are golden, about 10 minutes more. Remove from oven and cool slightly in the pan. Transfer the ginger beer ice cubes to a food processor and pulse until broken down and fluffy. Transfer to a small cake pan or baking dish. To serve, put 2 slices of warm pineapple on each dessert plate; top with a scoop of ginger ice and garnish with a small sprig of thyme. Note: If not using the ginger ice immediately, refreeze. To loosen it, scrape with a heavy fork until fluffy. Ginger beer is very spicy and the spiciness is enhanced when frozen. For milder ice, use natural ginger ale or ginger soda.
