Perfect Pineapple Dishes

Years ago imported pineapples were exotic and their sweet flavor was uncommon in Europe and colonial America. From pineapple-themed door mats to carved bedposts to door knockers, this coveted commodity became a symbol of welcoming and hospitality. Today, of course, acquiring a pineapple is as easy as a trip to the grocery store.

However, whether it’s served as a tasty complement to meat dishes or simply cubed, sweet, succulent pineapple still makes a very welcome addition to menus from sunrise to sunset.

From a morning fruit smoothie to a grilled after-dinner dessert, here are 12 of our favorite ways to enjoy pineapples.

Please consider giving a warm welcome to pineapples that are a part of our Whole Trade® Guarantee program, which ensures that farms pay equitable wages and provide better working conditions — and that 
you enjoy the best-quality tropical treat, delivered at peak ripeness.
