Dole Pineapple Juice Summer Sensation Recipes

Dole Pineapple Juice Chicken Salad with Pineapple Vinaigrette

Dole Pineapple Juice Makes Delicious Summer Recipes

I have always loved Dole products and was delighted to work with them to highlight their delicious Dole pineapple juice in these Trim and Terrific recipes.

From Pina Coladas to Mai Tai’s, even Bahama Mamas – tropical summer cocktails usually come to mind when you think of Dole pineapple juice. Of course, you can always drink a glass of pineapple juice, as this “king of fruit” is full of B vitamins, manganese, copper, potassium, beta-carotene, folic acid and immune boosting vitamin C.  However, there is so much more to the fruity juice than a drink!

Dole pineapple juice is the perfect zesty ingredient in many of your favorite recipes.

From savory to sweet, if you are looking for a tangy, sweet marinade for chicken, beef or pork, try a simple combination of pineapple juice, brown sugar and soy sauce.  Dole pineapple juice adds a subtle tropical zing to vinaigrette, while this flavorful juice shines bright as the star ingredient in a mouth-watering pineapple cake.  Here are five trim and terrific recipes featuring pineapple juice that will quickly become your summer sensation.
