Pico De Gallo

Pico de gallo is a type of salsa. While it may seem similar to regular salsa, they both have their share of differences! Pico de gallo contains less liquid and it’s much more chunky. It’s commonly used in tacos and fajitas. I like to put pico de gallo on lots of things like omelettes, quesadillas, and rice bowls.

I buy this because I like to combine it with spices, lime juice, and other ingredients to make a Tahini sauce to use as a dip, to make hummus, or to drizzle over meat on the grill. Tahini sauce is really versatile and wonderful and you need to know about if you don’t already!
