"This is really good, and so easy - no cooking required and no fancy spices. Mix ingredients in a bowl and serve with your favorite crackers. If sweet onions are not available and your onion is strong, add only half at first and then add more to taste."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I've made this twice now, the first time it was fine as is, but people weren't crazy about it and there was more than I expected left over. So the next time I made it I added curry powder and that did the trick. Everyone loved it and this time there was none left over my the end of the night. Thanks for sharing.
I started to drain the pineapple, as suggested by the other two reviews, but I bought Dole & there wasn't much to drain. I just mixed it in with the cream cheese then added the cheese; then, green onion & 1/8t cayenne. 'Thinking sour cream or half sour, half cream cheese would be better. It's heavy & on the bland side. Maybe subbing & less is the key. 'Glad I tried it, but it barely got touched.
Would recommend that you "completely" drain your pineapple and then add the juice as needed. I ended up with a spread that had too much juice and then had to drain it. Nothing fancy here, just a nice, simple cheese spread that you can put together in minutes. You get a good balance of sweetness from the pineapple and savory from the chopped onion.
