Why Hawaii is famous for Pineapples?

Along with all these the word Pineapple and Hawaii go hand in hand. In fact, pineapples are a symbol of Hawaii. In the Hawaiian language, they are called Hala Kahiki.

Though pineapples are native to Brazil in South America, still Hawaii is famous for pineapples.

This is because Hawaii has the largest pineapple industry and produces 80% of the world’s canned pineapple. Pineapples are so much linked with Hawaii that a Hawaiian theme party is incomplete without this majestic fruit. You may read more about pineapples and Hawaii here.

What is Hawaiian Salad?

The Hawaiian Salad that I am sharing with you today is a fruit salad. I call it Hawaiian Salad as only tropical fruits like Pineapple, Oranges, grapes and Kiwi are used in this. And then these fruits are mixed not with Chaat Masala and lemon juice but are adorned with a special dressing.

 As for the dressing, a different and unique dressing has been used. And this dressing is Pina Colada (virgin) dressing.

Pina Colada is a Spanish word meaning a cocktail made by Rum, pineapple juice, and Coconut Milk. Here, we have taken Virgin Pina Colada which means Rum has been avoided.
