Pico de Gayo

Ashley Muller


Making Pico de Gayo in our family has become a tradition. Whenever we all get together we all sit around the table cutting the veggies. My brother makes us cut them so small and precise it takes a while to get through all the tomatoes and onions. I hope you enjoy this recipe and can bring your family together also.
