That's what Thatboy told me the other night. And it's true. I've been getting a little creative with our salads and dressings.
With the leftover pineapple from the Hawaiian Chicken Sandwich, I decided to make a tropical fruit salad. Some pineapple, some mango, some coconut - all in a sweet pineapple dressing.
Serve this with something easy - like rice and chicken to jazz up the meal. Or use it to complement something like tacos or terriyaki. I warn you that it is VERY sweet - which makes it a very nice dessert too. (Even though Thatboy thinks fruit isn't a real dessert.)
It also works well for breakfast, mixed in with yogurt or cottage cheese. Fruit is ever so versatile.
