|Bleh. This is the "strange" I refer to in the title.|
|Yummy as a side dish or dessert!|
Toss 1/4 chopped pineapple with alfalfa sprouts, chopped sweet red onion and 1/2 cup cooked shredded chicken. Moisten with Thousand Island dressing and pile into Pita bread.
Simmer juice from pineapple -- canned or fresh -- with whole cinnamon and cloves, a little honey and lemon juice. Strain and drink hot. Or pour over ice cubes and add ginger ale for a cool drink.
