Ginger Pineapple Salad

ginger + lime + pineapple = yum

Around this time of year, when the farmer’s markets have only had apples and pears for weeks, I remember that there’s nothing else coming to those markets until next May.  For me, it’s a short step from that realization to the winter produce blues. 

Luckily, my friend Cybèle introduced me to a simple, delicious pineapple salad.  OK, “salad” is a bit of a stretch — it’s more like garnished pineapple, but that doesn’t make it any less amazing.  You’ll forget all about the long winter ahead when you pop these bright, sunny flavors into your mouth.

Ginger Pineapple Salad

  • 1 pineapple
  • hunk of fresh ginger
  • 1-3 limes (depending on their juiciness and your taste)

Cut your pineapple into 1 inch cubes. (Don’t know how to cut a pineapple?  Check out this video.) Place in a bowl large enough for tossing.

Peel your ginger.  (How do you peel ginger? With a spoon!)  Grate it directly over the pineapple.  Then squeeze your limes into the bowl, and toss.  Let sit for 20-30 minutes for the flavors to come together, then serve.
