  • Cutting board
  • Knife
  • Microplane grater
  • Citrus juicer
  • Mixing bowl


  • 2 cups diced pineapple
  • 1 jalapeño stemmed, leave in seeds
  • ¼ cup finely diced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 lime juiced


  • Add the pineapple, jalapeño, red onion, cilantro, ginger and salt to a mixing bowl. Squeeze the lime juice on top.
  • Stir to combine. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Enjoy!


  • Keep the pico de gallo in the refrigerator in an airtight container. With proper storage, it should keep for about two to three days.
  • To easily grate the ginger, I like to first peel it, store it in the freezer and then use a microplane grater. Frozen ginger grates so much easier than unfrozen ginger.
  • Wear kitchen gloves when handling the jalapeño.
  • While you can serve it right away, you might want to let it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours to allow the flavors to meld.
  • Before juicing the lime, firmly roll it on the countertop under the palm of your hand several times. This helps get the juices going. Also, make sure you pick a lime that has some give when you press into it.
