We really enjoyed this! The cayenne adds a perfect heat to the sweet pineapple. The few leftover slices were delicious the next day, chilled. A keeper!

Yum!! I used canned sliced pineapple and a little less olive oil than 1 tablespoon, and I thought this was delicious! Will definitely make again; Thanks!
