Labor Day weekend came and went, didn’t it? Now that we have to get back to reality after the long weekend, let’s ease back into the week with a simple, Fresh Pico de Gallo recipe. It’s a great way to use up those extra tomatoes from your garden.
Last week I shared a tasty Roasted Caprese Salad, but the pico de gallo is probably my favorite. It makes a lot and pairs well with a variety of foods including eggs, chicken, fish tacos or your favorite bag of tortilla chips.
Be sure to stick around to see what I’m blending towards the end of this week. It’s another tomato-inspired recipe that adds a twist to a classic cocktail!
