These summer rolls are my absolute favorite!! Why? Because they are so delicious, refreshing and I love that I can fill them up with all my favorite vegetables! I’ve used chicken in this recipe, but you can use shrimp too or even just keep them vegetarian. The peanut dipping sauce is my dad’s secret recipe, so you’re in for a treat!! Enjoy!!

Upside Down Pineapple Slice

29 June 2016

Jotun Thahabi - Ingredients-2 2


Upside Down Pineapple Slice

The sweetness of the “caramel” goes perfectly with the tartness of the pineapple… add some coconut and it’s a killer combination!! I love this raw upside down pineapple slice. It doesn’t require any cooking and I love to have these in the freezer for when I have sweet tooth cravings 🙂 They really don’t last very long in my house! I created this recipe inspired by “Thahabi”, a lustre coating by Jotun Paints Arabia. Thahabi reflects the golden souk, the golden grains of sand, the desert and this region’s timeless heritage. Head to Jotun Paints website to see more from this Oriental collection –> HERE.
Enjoy!! I hope you like this pineapple slice as much as I do!!
