Dole Jarred Fruit Review

Recently Dole & Momdot sent me some Dole Jarred Pinneapple Chunks to try. They also sent me some recipes to make using the jarred fruits. Let me tell you that they were delicious! I'd never tried the jarred fruit before. They are delicious and full of flavor and they are healthy too!

Did you know:
  • Pinneapple is a great source of Vitamin C which will strengthen your child's immune system.
  • Fruit is a better snack choice than high calorie junk food.
  • Fruit combats childhood obesity.
  • Presenting fruit in a fun way will raise your child's interest.
  • Fruit is the perfect before bed snack.
Here are two recipes that Dole sent for me to try out. Both of them were delicious and definitely worth a try!

Pineapple Tuna Bites
  • 1 Can (16oz) tuna packed in water, drained & flaked
  • 2 Tbsp (1oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 Jar (24.5oz) DOLE Pineapple Chunks
  • 2 Tbsp chopped almonds
  • 24 small round crackers (I used Ritz Roasted Vegetable Crackers)
Combine the tuna, cream cheese & mayonnaise in a bowl, mixing well. Chill or serve as is. Measure 1 Cup of drained pineapple chunks & stir into tuna mixture with almonds. Spoon mixture onto crackers. Makes 24 appetizers.

Mandarin Chicken Rollups
  • 1 Cooked boneless, skinless chicken breast half
  • 1/4 Cup Italian salad dressing
  • 1 Jar (24.5oz) DOLE Mandarin Oranges
  • 4 (6") flour tortillas (I used FlatOuts.)
  • 1 Cup DOLE Romaine Lettuce torn into bite-size pieces
Shred chicken & marinade in salad dressing in re-sealable bag for 15 minutes. Measure 1-1/3 Cup drained mandarin oranges. Divide chicken mixture equally on tortillas. Top each with mandarin oranges & lettuce; roll up and secure with toothpicks. Makes 4 servings.
