Pineapple skewers Cut up a whole pineapple and skewer it. Then roll one side in jello, whatever flavor you like, I prefer a red one. I think it just makes it nicer. Then eat! It is a simple and delicious desert!

Tropical Chicken Dinner - light and refreshing on the grill in spring/summer! wrap fresh pineapple, red peppers and green onions in foil. Grill about 20 minutes, until peppers and onions are tender. Grill boneless, skinless breast or tenders (rubbed with a Jamaican Jerk rub) until cooked throughout. Serve cooked chicken over basmati or jasmine rice, and cover with pineapple mixture! Whole process takes 20 minutes at most - only 6 ingredients for a complete, delicious, meal!!

MY recipe is simple and wonderful. Peel core and dice 1 whole pineapple. Place diced pineapple in a plastic or galss 1 quart container. Pour in enough vodka (any flavor) to cover diced pineapple. Let rest in refrigerator for at least an hour. You can strain off the vodka and mix in your favorite recipe or blend diced pineapple and vodka. Serve in a chilled martini glass. Nice addition to a light summer menu.

Fresh juicy cold pineapple is hard to beat all by itself, but to step it up a notch add a vanilla sauce made with 1/2 cup plain yogurt, 1/4 cup mayo, 1 tsp. lemon juice, 1 tsp. honey and 1 tsp. vanilla. Salt and pepper to taste. Yummy brunch treat!

A simple fruit salad just in time for spring: 1 pineapple, cut into bite-size chunks 3 medium bananas, sliced into chunks 2 cups strawberries, cut into halves or quarters Gently toss the 3 fruits together and refrigerate for about 10 minutes while the flavors meld a bit. Serve immediately. (If you let it sit for too long, such as overnight, the bananas and strawberries will get kind of mushy.)

Kahlua Pineapple This is the simplest dessert, but always gets rave reviews! You only need 3 ingredients, & I never even bother measuring it! Ingredients: 1/2 Fresh Pineapple Sliced into Rings (approx. 3/4" thick) Butter or Smart Balance (at least a teaspoon for each ring) Kahlua (at least a tablespoon for each ring) Directions: Place a frying pan on medium low heat. Add butter or Smart Balance, and once it is mostly melted add Kahlua. Stir well, and then add pineapple rings. Be sure both sides of the pineapple ring get coated with the sauce, and saute for approximately 3-4 minutes a side. I usually am more generous with the Kahlua and butter to make extra sauce--it's also delicious with vanilla ice cream!
