12 (1 inch) cubes fresh pineapple

12 water chestnut slices

4 thick-cut bacon slices, cut crosswise into 3 pieces

12 toothpicks

1/4 cup low-fat sesame-ginger salad dressing

1/2 tablespoon chopped green onion, or to taste



Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line the bottom section of a broiler pan with aluminum foil, top with the broiler rack, and spray rack with cooking spray.

Place a water chestnut slice atop each pineapple cube; wrap each with 1 bacon slice, securing with a toothpick. Arrange wrapped pineapple on the prepared broiler rack.

Bake in the preheated oven for 7 minutes; turn and continue baking until bacon is almost crisp, about 8 more minutes. Brush rumaki with sesame-ginger dressing and continue baking until bacon is crisp, about 5 more minutes. Garnish rumaki with green onion.
