Pico de Gallo {garden style}

With tomato, onion and pepper season right around the corner, where I live...I can almost taste the bursting flavor of this wonderful Spring time snack.{You can, obviously, use store bought produce... but, as always, fresh from the garden tastes mucho better!}

Pico de Gallo
1.5 cups grape tomatoes chopped into fours. {BTW: Costco has the best tasting 'store bought' grape tomatoes known to man. :)}
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 jalapeno, minced {if ya like it spicy}
1/2 serrano pepper, minced {if ya like it not so spicy}
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1 tsp cilantro
1 tsp raw honey
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients and toss in small bowl.
Grab some tortilla chips and dive in!

{The flavor is best if allowed to
sit in fridge for a couple hours first...
if ya have the patience.}

MmmmMMm Emily, This is a favorite here too! Only I wish we had fresh stuff in our garden to make it with! I can't even think about planting tomato plants until way into May! But I will be remembering this recipe when I do! Thanks for posting it!

P.S. I agree with you about Costo's Tomatoes when not in season they have the best tasting I have found!

Have you tried homemade brown rice tortilla chips? Take a brown rice tortilla (you can find them at a local health food store, Whole Foods or Trader Joe's), brush each side with some olive oil and a little salt, cut into wedges (I usually get 12/tortilla) and bake in a 400 degree oven for 4 minutes/side. Yummy!
