You will need

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped rosemary
  • 20 bocconcini (bite-sized mozzarella balls)
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes
  • 1 can (8 oz.) DOLE® Pineapple Chunks, drained
  • 20 cocktail sticks or trimmed rosemary branches


  1. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over low heat; add rosemary and stir gently until it starts to shimmer. Remove from heat and pour into a glass bowl.
  2. Drain bocconcini and add them to a separate bowl with chili flakes. Shake gently to ensure each ball has a little chili on it, then set aside.
  3. Place frying pan back on medium-high heat (no need to wash it) and add pineapple chunks. Cook for 2 minutes then flip and cook on the other side for another 2 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat and add to the rosemary oil. Allow to cool.
  5. Thread one bocconcini ball and one pineapple chunk on each cocktail stick and set on a platter. Cover and keep chilled until ready to serve.
