Pineapple is often paired with salt because of the flavor contrast… think Canadian Bacon and Pineapple pizza!
I first had this pineapple dish when I hosted Thanksgiving one year, and my dear friend brought this. She brought it slightly warmed, and when I removed the foil from her serving dish, I was amazed at how beautiful and scrumptious it looked!
Well, looks aren’t everything, but it enticed 16 guests to try it and the reviews were amazing! I was so thankful and proud to have such a thoughtful friend bring a unique and different dish to my Thanksgiving table that year…and I’ve served it ever since!
