Sweet and Sour Calamares
by Del Monte Kitchenomics

When it comes to pineapple, Del Monte is king. Its pineapples are hand-picked and packed just when it’s ripe so the sweet taste—and nutrients—is locked in. Add it to savory and sweet dishes and you get this bold flavor that makes everyday recipes more appetizing. It’s the reason why nine out of 10 kids prefer dishes with pineapple.
