Pico De Gallo

Pico-De-Gallo.jpg

This recipes comes courtesy of Pastor Nik! Ok just kidding!
 We went over to Nik and Heathers for Superbowl and Nik went on to tell everyone he had made the pico! He's such a prankster! But his wife Heather did make a really tasty crock pot beef sandwich with caramelized onions ( still drooling thinking of there tastiness) and Andrea had made a super tasty brownie with peanut butter swirled in! 
I will have to work on trying to get something close on the brownies. (If I was smart I would have wrapped the 2 brownies left and taken them home, but I was too stuffed to think ahead!) 
Actually this recipe came to together from my Sister in law Dana. She taught me the top secret ingredient of a fresh juiced orange. It really balances out the citrus!
 This recipe is a favorite I make it almost every time I make tacos or fajitas! I was super lucky Klesick Family Farm  added the ingredients to my order late on Tuesday so I was able to have everything delivered! 
They really are awesome for delivery.

Really the pictures are just because I love the way the light was hitting the produce!
Chop, chop your tomatoes.

Shred cabbage and carrots. I used the food processor! You can also finely chop the cabbage. Also dice your onion, some how I'm missing the picture.

Chop finely the jalapeno and pickled jalapeno.

Juice orange and limes. Eek! What happened to my hand?

  9. I was just about to say that this would be perfect on grilled chicken, and then I saw that someone said that above. (Apparently, I'm not that creative. Ha!) It looks delicious. Now, I'm headed off to click that thumbnail I see for zucchini/carrot/pineapple/walnut cake.

  15. I love pico de gallo in restaurants, but I have to admit I have never made it at home. Your recipe looks wonderful! I have never tried pickled jalapeno. Is that your own addition, or is it traditional for this recipe?

    Thank you for the kind comment on my blog. I'm so glad you stopped by my blog because it helped me to find you and your wonderful blog.:) I look forward to checking out all of your wonderful recipes!

  25. Hey Serena I've been wanting to make this pico for a while now and finally whipped it up for my Grandpa's 81st birthday party yesterday. Everyone devoured it, it was literally the first dish gone. We enjoyed it with a big bag of Food Should Taste Good multigrain chips. Thanks for the recipe... I'll definately be making this again!
