Rice, curry, garlic and pineapple blend together to create this distinctive side dish. "It's so pretty serve in a pineapple shell," says Cecelia Bodden of Burnaby, British Columbia. "And it tastes as good as it looks."
This colorful casserole is a standout from my mother's collection of family recipes. Excellent texture and taste guarantee it won't play second fiddle to either the turkey or the pumpkin pie!

Sharon Adamczyk of Wind Lake, Wisconsin writes, "With quick-cooking rice, this is a speedy side dish...but the almonds make it special enough to serve to company. It goes well with all kinds of meats."
My husband loves to barbecue, so when it's hot outside, we do entire meals on the grill. Since our kids love rice, we often include this tangy side dish as part of the menu. —Shirley Hopkins, Olds, Alberta
I FOUND this pretty rice dish in a salad oil ad in the Ladies' Home Journal back in 1948. It's a favorite not only for its good taste, but for its simplicity of preparation.
A potluck and picnic pleaser, this side dish travels well.
