PinkGlow ® Pineapple Carpaccio

by Tasha Ann Powell

I love learning about a new fruit that has only been on the planet in development for five years.  And, it has only been on the market for 2 years at the writing of this recipe in January of 2022.  I am talking about the Pinkglow ® pineapple grown in Costa Rica by Delmonte and distributed in America by Melissa’s Produce.  This hybrid pineapple is so sweet and smooth.  This recipe was taught to me by Tasha Ann Powell, a very talented food blogger and “Pitcher and Powell” food tour operator in Morocco, Provence and Italy.  It makes a beautiful presentation and an even more delicious dessert! The edible gold just brings it to a whole new level.  Enjoy!
