One day, I was minding my own business when a friend insisted that I try her Pico de Gallo. Now Pico de Gallo is one of those standard Mexican salsas that is delicious because of its fresh, flavorful ingredients. It typically contains tomatoes, onions, maybe some jalapenos, and cilantro. When I made it at home, it was good, but not exciting.
All that changed on that fateful day at my friend’s house. Pico de Gallo became exciting and mysterious! Yes, mysterious because I knew it had some secret ingredients in it that made it SO DARN GOOD! I begged my friend for the recipe, and she so unselfishly complied. And now I am sharing it with you, because you will never love another Pico de Gallo as much as you will love this Pico de Gallo. It’s like dumping your boring, safe boyfriend for the adventuresome, daring boyfriend (who also happens to look fantastic).
