The only slightly complicated part of this recipe for candied ginger and pineapple is the process of making yogurt cheese, and that’s just a matter of straining whey out of yogurt overnight. The rest is just cutting and mixing.

16-ounce carton vanilla-flavored low-fat yogurt
20-ounce can pineapple chunks, packed in own juice
1 tablespoon finely chopped candied ginger
