Salute the tropics with pineapples

During the early part of the year, sometimes it seems like spring will never get here and summer is a thing of the past, but even on those long winter days, you can always consider making dishes that feature a fruit that brings warmer weather to mind.

Fresh or canned, pineapple, is good and versatile.

My favorite way to eat it is fresh without baking, grilling or roasting. But these dishes change it up a little bit.

I wouldn’t recommend preparing them all for one meal. That might be overkill.

Still, they make a tasty addition to any table.
