Produced in partnership with Sarela Herrada of SIMPLi and Yolanda Acurio Mendoza of the women-run co-op Comunidad Salinera de Maras, this blush pink salt from ponds high in the Peruvian Andes is harvested by hand to retain superior mineral content. Its mild taste and medium grind size – between fine kosher salt and crunchy finishing salt – make The Salt a versatile addition to any pantry, enhancing the flavors of all your favorite dishes. 

Delivered in a 3 oz bespoke ceramic vessel. Co-founders Ariel and Atara created the custom-designed pinch pot of their dreams with a half moon lid that marries form and function.  Delivered in a 3 oz bespoke ceramic vessel.

  • Hand-harvested Peruvian blush salt
  • Delivered in a 3oz bespoke ceramic vessel that can be re-used and looks great on a kitchen counter
  • If there’s one piece of culinary advice we can offer, it’s salt to taste – literally. Salt not only adds its own flavor, but also balances and enhances the flavors it encounters. From sun-ripened tomatoes to fudgy espresso brownies, juicy roast chicken to jammy, soft boiled eggs, The Salt lets just about every ingredient shine in a new light.  

Pineapple Collaborative started as a simple potluck dinner with the founders' friends in 2015. At the time, brands everywhere seemed to be on a mission to “build community,” yet they never really felt welcome. So the founders decided to start the kind of community they wished existed and to show up where it counts—in your kitchen, online, and in real life. 

Back then Pineapple was known as “Pineapple DC” and its founding team-- Ariel Pasternak, Raisa Aziz, Ann Yang, Maddie Morales, Jordan Miller, and Atara Bernstein-- hosted events across Washington, DC spotlighting incredible women in food and building community. As their momentum grew, Pineapple DC became Pineapple Collaborative-- expanding their events to New York, the Bay Area, and Los Angeles while launching digital content too.

Today, Pineapple is led by Ariel and Atara, Dani Dillon, Rebecca Kligerman, and many others who contribute in ways big and small to create this thriving community.

In the Fall of 2019, they launched their first products--The Olive Oil & The Apple Cider Vinegar: one drop in our mission to express our style, identity, and values through food.
