How Pinteresting--Hawaiian Dip
By Sharon Ng
Our kitchen is in the process of a bit of a remodel. The stove and refrigerator are both sitting in our family room until the tiling work is done, and so my pinterest review for the month is one that requires no cooking. All it requires is a food processor!
Yearning for something summery, I thought I would give this Hawaiian Dip a whirl, and whirl I did. Here is the URL from Food It Forward (visit it for recipe information and directions):
I stuck all the ingredients in my food processor, as the recipe calls for. I used crushed pineapple, and since the recipe didn't call for me to drain the pineapple, I didn't.
My dip was way too runny, in my opinion. I fixed this by adding an additional cup and a half of coconut. Maybe drained, or using a sieve to remove the liquid from the pineapple would have yielded a less runny dip. This Hawaiian Dip is delicious. I dipped with vanilla wafers, and loved every second of it. It also makes a ton! I really could have cut the recipe in fourths and still had more than enough. I also added chopped walnut, but I think chopped macadamia would have sent it right over the edge!
Give this recipe a whirl, you won't be disappointed.
