I’ve been blessed to have been to Jamaica twice in my life. It’s a fantastic place to visit with it’s beautiful crystal clear water and “No problems, mon” atmosphere. It’s one of the very few places that I’ve visited that I feel carefree. Two flavors that always bring me back to the Caribbean are pineapple and coconut. I’m a huge fan of both and together they make the most amazing combination.
There’s of course the ever-popular pina colada made of rum, coconut cream, and pineapples. But I have something new for you to try that might just curb your craving for the tropical duo.
I found this Pineapple Pretzel Salad recipe and made some changes to give it a tropical and healthier twist. Although, the fact that I sat and ate half the pan the night that I made this kinda counteracted the fact that it was healthy, but you’ll be smarted than me won’t you?
I think that one of my favorite things about this dessert is that it’s got that sweet and salty thing going on. The pineapple and cream cheese provide that tasty sweet that you expect from a dessert, but the salty pretzels along with the toasted coconut give it a salty taste. This is the perfect summer dessert.
