My aunt who lived in Hawaii gave me this cherished recipe. She would prepare a traditional tropical meal for us whenever we visited, and this fruity side was always included. I always think of her when I make it, whether it’s for the holidays or an everyday meal. —Joan Hallford, North Richland Hills, Texas
