  • 2 In medium bowl, mix rice, yogurt and reserved pineapple juice. Cover; refrigerate 1 to 2 hours to blend flavors.

Tips  

*To toast coconut, cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 6 to 14 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.

You can sub 1 (6-oz) container of Yoplait® Original 99% Fat Free French vanilla yogurt for the yogurt in this recipe.

Mild-flavored albacore tuna is the only tuna that can be called "white" because it has the whitest flesh, its mark of distinction.
