Pineapple Spread

Pin It

When you’re hosting a party, it’s all about balancing the food options…particularly when it comes to appetizers. You have to balance the number of hot and cold options, the number of dips, the number that can be made ahead of time…you get the picture. Are my mom and I the only ones like this? When planning my little sister’s graduation party, this was something we talked through, like the party planning / food lover crazies we are!

This dip made the cut, not just because it balanced the spread (cold, a dip, could be made ahead of time), but also because it’s always a popular favorite. Set it out with crackers and watch it disappear, as most cream cheese-based dips are apt to do!

Pineapple Spread
-8oz cream cheese, softened
-1 small can crushed pineapple (drained)
-1/4 cup chopped green pepper
-1 Tbsp. grated onion
-1 cup pecans - then chop
-1/2 Tbsp. Lawry's seasoned salt

1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, mixing well to combine. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve with crackers.
