It’s Pico de gallo time!

posted in: Recipes 0

When I was a kid, I hated tomatoes...with a passion. My mom would always shake her head saying, "Ketchup is your favorite food group, how do you hate tomatoes!" It's the texture I hated, and the taste and how everyone said they were healthy. If I found a tomato on my burger, the burger was beyond saving and offered up to whoever wanted it. It all changed one day… when I had an amazing pico de gallo. I hope you enjoy what I think is a pretty close recipe to the one I had that day. Of course, this recipe includes brain healthy tomatoes and grape seed oil.
