I’ve been on the road and now I’m back. Why I can’t blog while I’m on the road is a mystery I can not explain. But in honor of summer I’m re-posting a favorite summer treat. Dice and enjoy!

What do I eat when I’m famished? I’ll tell you. I eat Pico de Gallo. Chime in here if I am wrong, but I believe Pico de Gallo is like Salsa, only not. It is diced vegetables tossed together, rather than mushed together. My dear friend SES makes the world’s best Pico de Gallo, but I don’t think she calls it that. All I know is that one day, she brought me a large container of this concoction along with a bag of chips. I ate the entire contents of the container by myself (there were a few chips left in the bag). I told no one and I admitted to nothing.
It may seem like I’m on a Mexican food kick here. But Mexican food is an integral part of my life. In fact I’ll prove it to you by publishing my favorite mexican chocolate cake….but not until I eat another few bowls of Pico de Gallo.
Pico de Gallo
3 tomatoes, diced
1/4 red onion, minced
1 avocado, diced
fresh lime juice (lots and lots)
cilantro, chopped (optional)
fresh corn (optional, but if you do it, use corn that you cut directly off the cob…it makes all the difference)
Dice the tomatoes and avocados. Mince the red onion. Juice the limes into the vegetables. Add optional vegetables. Mix. Serve with tortillas chips.
