This salad in its own container comes from Hawaii, pineapple paradise of the world – made with the fruit that once only kings could afford.

2 fresh pineapples
2 1/2 cups cut-up cooked chicken or turkey

2 tbsp. chopped chutney
1 tsp. curry powder
1 medium banana, sliced
1/3 cup salted peanuts
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1 can (11 oz.) mandarin orange segments, drained

Remove fruit by cutting along edges with curved knife. Cut fruit into cubes, removing any eyes and fibrous core. Drain pineapple shells cut side down.
