    List of Ingredients

    1 medium pineapple
    1 cup plain fat-free yogurt
    5 leaves basil, chopped
    1/2 tsp ginger root, finely grated
    3 tsp McNeil Nutritionals SPLENDA (R) No Calorie Sweetener, or to taste


    Soak 4 bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes (or use metal skewers). Preheat broiler, grill or stovetop (for grill pan).

    Cut pineapple into quarters, core it and then cut each quarter into 1/2- to 3/4-inch slices to yield about 16 to 20 slices total.

    Place 4 or 5 slices of pineapple on each skewer. Grill pineapple on each side until grill marks form and it starts to get crisp in spots, about 4 to 5 minutes per side.

    Mix together yogurt, basil, ginger and Splenda in a small bowl. Drizzle mixture over pineapple or serve on the side as a dip. Yields about 4 to 5 pieces of pineapple and 1/4 cup of sauce per serving.
