Pico de Gallo Two Ways (11)

Pico de Gallo is referred to as salsa fresco, a type of salsa. It’s a fresh, chunky, uncooked, and a distinctly visible mixture of tomatoes, onions, cilantro, fresh chiles, lime juice, and salt. Traditional salsa has a thinner consistency with more liquid.

Who says pineapple can’t be a Pico de Gallo. We’re having tacos tonight with two different types of Pico de Gallo. The traditional Pico de Gallo with tomatoes and onions, and a pineapple pico. We love having options!

My neighbor, Lucinda has few beautiful pineapple plants which are ready for harvesting. You just know they’re going to be so sweet. I knew I had to make something using, pineapple. I’m also going to make a traditional Pico de Gallo.
