This recipe is for a delicious dip made with all types of tasty ingredients. It has been a bone of contention for many people when it comes to ham and pineapple together. I believe people should simply taste it before passing judgment.

It is in the same category as sweet and savory or salty and sweet. This dip is definitely filled with layers of flavor and a combination of textures.

The first layer is a combination of pineapple juice, sour cream and cream cheese, which in itself provides delight for the taste buds.

In all you have the creamy combined with crunchy sweet, salty and tangy all in one bowl. This is a true delight to many, and others learn what they have been missing once they decide to try it.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            Is the pineapple juice necessary in the bottom layer?

I would still use it, even if you are unsure of it. The pineapple juice will help make a smoother consistency in the bottom layer.

            Do I have to use ham and bacon?

You could use turkey bacon if you wanted to. I prefer to stick with the bacon and ham. It is a great combination when it comes to Hawaiian foods.

            How can I store this dip?

The dip should be placed into an airtight container and then placed into the refrigerator. It will last for 3 to 4 days.

            Can I freeze this dip?

I would not advise freezing this dip. The texture of the bottom layer is going to be different from the original.
