It is that time of year for fresh salsa from the garden. Pico de gallo translated means 'roosters beak'. It is a condiment made from fresh tomatoes, onions, and peppers. It is very simple to make. It is also good for your body because it is packed with vitamin C. This salsa goes with everything. You can customize it to your garden contributions or your taste. I love to put a couple of hot peppers into the mix for fun. It needs a splash of acid to perk up the salsa. I am using fresh limes from my backyard tree. Ms. Goofy planted a tree a couple of years back. She wanted fresh limes for her Margaritas. If you do not have fresh lime you can use a splash of vinegar. The following recipe is only an outline. Experiment and have fun!


  1. 4 tomatoes

  2. 1 onion

  3. 1 tablespoon cilantro

  4. 2 peppers

  5. 2 tablespoons lime juice

  6. 1 pinch of salt and sugar

Chop all ingredients and mix. Let rest for 1/2 hour before serving

It's definitely salsa time! I usually add a smidge of cinnamon or nutmeg to the mix--- it gives the salt something to work off of.
