Garden fresh pico de gallo is bursting with flavor, it’s hard to compare. It’s easy to make, tastes fresh, and is good for you.
Yesterday my childcare organization put on a home daycare tour for providers to share ideas. They drove in a caravan from childcare home to childcare home and stopped in here to tour the kid’s garden. It was so much fun! I whipped up a few goodies for them to snack on when they came and they LOVED them.
What is the difference between pico and salsa? Salsa is blended and can be fresh or cooked, but pico is a raw salad with distinct pieces of each ingredient visible. It’s fresh, it’s chunky, and it’s tasty!
