How to Make a Pineapple Boat

Cutting a Pineapple Boat


A Pineapple Boat is a creative and easy way to serve fruit salads , chicken salads or fruit dips!

Add some tropical flair to your next brunch, lunch or party by serving your salads or fruit dips in a cute pineapple boat!  It is quick and easy to make a pineapple boat and the fresh pineapple you remove will go right into your fruit salad!

  • Start with a fresh pineapple that has an attractive top.  The leaf top will be a part of the pineapple boat and you want to choose a pineapple that looks fresh.  Buy a pineapple that has a light pineapple scent with a firm skin.  An overpowering pineapple scent or a skin that indents easily indicates a pineapple that is overripe.
  • You will need two knives.  You will need a large knife to cut the pineapple in half and a smaller knife to remove the inside of the pineapple.

Place the pineapple on a cutting mat and turn it to find the most attractive and stable way for it to sit.  Remember, you don’t want the pineapple boat to roll over once it if filled with a salad or fruit dip!

Cut the pineapple in half and remove the inside of the pineapple to create a “boat”.
