Grilled chicken Pineapple Sandwiches -- Delicious!! For each sandwich, start with a piece of bread. Spread butter on it and place butter-side down on electric grill. Place thin slices of grilled chicken on top, then slice or two of pineapple. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese. Then top with another piece of bread. Butter top of bread. Grill on electric grill at 325 degrees until golden brown on both sides.

My kids and I just made this yesterday, it was decadent! Coconut Pineapple Frosting: 2 spears fresh pineapple finely chopped 6 oz mascarpone cheese 1/2 cup powdered sugar 1/2 tsp coconut extract We used the frosting on gluten free coconut cupcakes that we made from a variation of GF vanilla cake mix. After generously frosting the cupcakes, we dipped them in toasted coconut flakes (nest) and then added jelly beans (eggs) to make spring nests. They were cute and delicious and they're all gone already. We gave half away so we wouldn't eat all of them.

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!
