Island Rice-A tribute to Haiti

My family loves rice, especially my husband. Although I'm not a fan of just plain rice, I really enjoy this rice dish. The pineapple lends a sweetness to the rice but is balanced out by the lime juice, cilantro and onions added at the end of cooking. This pairs perfectly with the bold flavors of the Jerk-Style Chicken.

2 1/2 cups water
1 cup uncooked long-grain rice
1/2 cup chopped dried pineapple
2 tsp. butter
1/2 tsp. grated lime rind
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
1 Tbsp. chopped green onions
2 1/2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice

Bring 2 1/2 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan; add rice and next 4 ingredients. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat; stir in cilantro, onions, and juice.

Serve with Jerk-Style Chicken
