I love apple waldorf salad, so this mayonnaise-based fruit salad really appealed to me. However, the fresh pineapple I purchased didn’t ripen in time, so instead I used 1 can of pineapple chunks. In the absence of specific amounts for certain ingredients, I added about 1 1/2 cups of canola mayonnaise and 1/4 cup demerara sugar. Since the canned pineapple was  rather wet, I didn’t add any extra cream to thin out the mayonnaise. Finally, I chose to toast the pecans before adding them for a little extra crunch.

This salad has a mild, sweet flavor, with enough savory undertones from the celery and pecans to keep it from being cloying. I think that fresh pineapple would provide a little bit of a bolder flavor and texture, but even using canned, I would definitely make this again as a side salad or a light dessert.
