PICO DE GALLO
The best pico de gallo I have ever had was on our honeymoon in Cabo San Lucas.
That was almost 8 years ago. Now I would probably eat anything there without any trepidation. Maturity or stupidity…tough call.
This recipe can compete with the pico we ate on our honeymoon. It’s also what I use in my Cafe Rio recipes!
I’ve decided that if I had to eat one thing for the rest of my life it would be homemade chips and Pico de Gallo. A side of guac wouldn’t hurt either.

I really like using grape tomatoes because they don't get mushy like Roma tomatoes can be. Use about 2.5 to 3 cups of grape tomatoes!
