  • A family favorite of ours for 38 yrs as well! Only, I simply add 1 tsp. seasoned salt (like Lawry's) instead of your last two ingredients, I'm often asked for this recipe! To make a cream cheese spread (& to lighten the calories), I'll add more unsweetened pineapple, it's great on celery! - 3/28/13
