This pico de gringo not Authentic. It sure is good though.

This pico de gringo was lovingly stolen from my sister (With her permission.)

It’s the most beautiful multivitamin you can ever have, and I love to eat it with most anything. This is a smash hit at potlucks, as it’s so vibrant and caters to any diet. It’s a wonderful reminder that eating healthy can be flavorful. Speaking of flavorful and healthy, how about the recipe for that beautiful guacamole? That recipe is authentic New Mexican.

The name? Well, this is not Pico de Gallo (literally translated- beak of the rooster- a Mexican chunky style salsa.) It is Pico de gringo (Literally translated- beak of the white person. Forgive my sad humor!)
