So while away last week I picked up several cookbooks. There is a simple pineapple dip in one that I happened to have all the ingredients for so why not give it a go.




From the Dole Plantation.


The recipe calls for diced ham but I don't have any so I grabbed some pulled pork out of the freezer.


Chop it up.


Smells so good.


Pineapple and onion soup mix added to the pulled pork.


I doubled the recipe and after adding two packages of the onion soup mix I wish I had kept it to one thinking it may be too salty. We will see.


Cream cheese and whipping cream added to pineapple mixture.


Into the fridge it goes to sit for a few hours.

Will keep you posted on the taste....I am skeptical....perhaps one package of the onion soup mix and should have used fresh pineapple....but I may be surprised.

Savory Pineapple Dip

Ingredients

1/2 Cup Grated Pineapple
1 Package Instant Onion Soup Mix
1/4 Cup Minced Cooked Ham
4-6- Ounces Cream Cheese Softened
1/2 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream

Directions

In a small bowl, combine pineapple, onion soup mix, ham, and mix thoroughly.

Combine cream cheese and whipping cream and fold into pineapple mixture.

Cover and refrigerate for an hour.

Serve with chips, crackers, fruit or vegetables.

Makes about 2 Cups

I have such strong feelings about pineapple on pizza I am not sure what to think. But, I'll keep an open mind. After all, I do love duck with Grand Marnier and an apricot glaze on a ham so........

I am surprised...it has an interesting flavor and texture that keeps you coming back. I do think the original recipe as written is probably fairly dang tasty if using ham and fresher pineapple. If doubling the recipe I would only add one soup mix though. It is not overpowering with two but you can taste it for sure. Surprised.

Edit: After eating a number of chips with the dip it does have way too much soup mix....for sure keep it to one pack if doubling.

Instead of ham you should use Spam.
