Pico de Gallo

One of my favorite places to go with my daughter on the weekends is the farmer’s market. I like making a morning out of it. We’ll shop for produce, grab a little bite to eat, enjoy the outdoor entertainment and sometimes jump around in the splash pad. Most of the time I have in mind what new recipe I want to try over the weekend, so I’ll buy ingredients according to my recipe. Tomatoes, onion, cilantro, jalapenos are always on my list.  So because we’ll be grilling this weekend I decided to make a Pico de Gallo. Its easy, fresh, delicious and a great compliment to any carne asada or grilled chicken. I usually make enough to eat with tostadas or homemade tortillas.
