Growing up with Cuban parents, we usually always had some type of homemade 'pico de gallo' served with dinner, but I can't recall ever really enjoying it as a kid, because well, I hated veggies like.every.other.kid. But, there's hope for those veggie-hating kids, because look at me now.. drooling over a bowl of tomatoes, onions and cilantro all covered in lime. 😉

    This is super easy! Yeah every time I go home my mom makes Pico to but I never learned how to make! 😛 I will probably add a lot of Jalapanos because hubby likes spicy.
