Heirloom Tomato Pico de Gallo video

Whenever you have a party I bet there's a pretty good chance that chips and salsa are involved. After all, everyone loves them and few things are easier than opening a jar of salsa. However, instead of buying salsa for your next shindig, I beg you to pull out a knife, a cutting board, and the few basic ingredients needed to make your own fresh version.

I made an enormous batch of Heirloom Tomato Pico de Gallo for the shooting of this video and afterwards I ended up on the couch with the bowl in my lap and two kids tucked in next to me, each of us clutching a spoon, foregoing the chips and shoveling the salsa right into our mouths.

If you can't find heirloom tomatoes at your local farmers' market try your grocery. Those multi-colored, meaty jewels are just waiting to be diced up and form the foundation of this perfect salsa. Watch the video and I'll show you how to whip it up.

    I am so lucky to live in the countryside where farmstands trump markets. However, in Oregon our Heirloom tomatoes wont be ready until late summer but you better believe I will be making this!!

    the heat actually comes from the membrane, not the seeds. Love your videos. We grow every type of pepper...inside and outside.
