This is the final of three – a series of dinner reviews of the popular meal delivery service, Hello Fresh. I have been eye’ing these companies for a while now, and recently decided to give a couple of them a try! So….. here’s dinner #3 – Carmelized Pineapple with Monterey Jack Cheese and Red Cabbage Slaw.
Here is what it’s supposed to look like:
Truthfully, this one sounded labor intensive…and, I almost didn’t choose it, but I figured if this trial was going to be REAL, I needed to step outside my comfort zone a bit.
Here are the ingredients:
Here is my finished product: Sooo colorful & pretty!!
The Pros: Juicy burgers, tasty pineapple-onion topping. The slaw was really tasty with white-wine vinagrette. This was really simple to prepare. Look about 25 minutes from start to finish.
The Cons: My family just doesn’t like mayo & there was supposed to be mayo on the burgers and in the slaw. I added about a tablespoon to the slaw, but omitted the spread on the burgers. Yuck. We would have preferred whole wheat buns. No other complaints!
