We have been fortunate to visit the Hawaiian islands more than once, and we fell in love with the foods, culture, and beauty of Maui and Kauai. These are some of our favorite Hawaiian-inspired recipes that go beyond merely just adding pineapple to a dish. They are based on our experiences there and the different and delicious foods we tried from shave ice to huli-huli chicken and beyond.

Need a suggestion? Try the delicious Hawaiian Macaroni Salad with the Grilled Teriyaki Chicken Skewers. Or churn up a batch of Coconut Macadamia Nut Ice Cream that you won't find in stores anywhere on the mainland!
