Hawaiian Delight!

This recipe is wonderful! It’s called Hawaiian Delight Dip, but we used it as a spread for crackers. Oh my! What a treat. This is my second recipe from Luana (you can read my interview of her from my November 3, 7 and 10 posts.)

Not only did my family find this dip delightful, but I also impressed my writers’ group when I made it for our meeting a couple weeks ago.

If you missed Luana’s recipe for Pumpkin Mochi, or any other recipe I’ve posted over the past year and a half, click here or go to my Recipe Page to find links to every recipe—there are some great ones!

Hawaiian Delight Dip (or Spread)

1 pkg cream cheese
1 small can crushed pineapple—drained
1 tsp lemon juice
1 - 2 TBSP mayo

(Mix the above well)

Fold in:
½ c chopped dates (or more if you love dates!)
½ c chopped pecans (or more if you love pecans!)
½ c shredded coconut

Hawaiian Delight Dip (Spread)
I happen to love ALL of the above ingredients, so I folded in more than ½ c of each—YUM!

Luana likes to add some diced up mango. I had a mango, but it was still ripening to use for her Mango Bread recipe, so I didn’t add any. But I bet it’s delicious!

Enjoy, and remember to go to the recipe page if you want to take a look at any or all of my past recipes! I have a couple more of Luana’s recipes coming up, so keep checking back.

Definition of Hawaiian Delight: Eating this spread and sitting back with my flip-flopped feet propped up! Mmmm . . . Mmmm!

  1. I can almost taste the pineapple. Which reminds me of our honeymoon to Cancun. We had "real" pineapple, not the canned stuff. Just love the fresh. Mmm, mmm. Now you've got me wondering if it's on sale this week...

  2. Hope you get a chance to try it, Rahul! Thanks for your support. :-)

  3. Oooooh, yes, Rhonda! There's nothing like fresh pineapple! I did use canned for this recipe and it was wonderful. I like to eat fresh "straight!" (grin!) Thanks so much for visiting and commenting!

  4. Hmmmm, I'm not a big pineapple fan but I LOVE cream cheese, so I'd def. be interested in trying that dip.

  5. Go for it, Jessica! Use less of the pineapple--just enough for the sweet taste. You can always increase the coconut and pecans--yummy!

    Let me know if you try it! :-)


I love hearing from my readers! Mahalo for visiting and commenting. Aloha! --Cheryl
