"Ham and pineapple is one of my favorite combinations and this is absolutely delicious. I left out the Dijon, simply because I don't like Dijon mustard and, instead of minced onion, I used sliced fresh sweet onion. Also, rather than putting the mixture onto buns, I put it into pita pockets. The pita bread held onto the ingredients very nicely. I'm always on the lookout for new sandwich ideas and I'm so glad I ran across this one. Thanks!"

"This would be a good recipe to make for a special occasion once or twice a year. I switched up red peppers for the green peppers. I didn't have Dijon mustard so I used 3 tablespoons of yellow mustard and 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce in place of it."
