Heirloom Tomato Pico de Gallo

Heirloom Tomato Pico de Gallo from Weelicious

When I think of summertime these are some of the things that comes to mind_

1. Kids running through the yard and throwing themselves on a wet Slip 'n Slide.
2. Popsicle juice dripping down little fingers gripping a wooden stick.
3. Loose fitting white dresses that keep you cool in the hot sun.
4. Munching on huge wedges of ice cold watermelon while chillin' by the pool.

But most of all…

5. Watching the tomato vines in our garden finally blossom and be overrun with juicy heirlooms in a variety of colors and sizes. Rarely are they perfect in shape, but their flavor? Indescribably delicious.

Sure you can buy a plastic tub or jar of pico de gallo at the grocery, but there's nothing like making it fresh. Big chunks of ripe tomatoes, bite size pieces of red onion, handfuls of chopped cilantro, and zesty lime juice all blended to create a signature flavor. You can follow "my" pico recipe below, but I highly recommend you just take the idea and make it to your taste. Spoon it over grilled chicken or fish or just go classic and scoop it up with crunchy tortilla chips.

What tastes more like summer than that?

    Perfect timing - we are up to our elbows in 9 varieties of heirloom tomatos, and while I'll can enough tomato sauce and salsa to last the year, we have plenty of tomatos to try something new!!
