What’s your favorite type of ‘pico’? I love something a little different than the standard tomato, onion, cilantro (though you can’t go wrong with the classic). This spicy radish pico de gallo featuring crunchy cucumbers and radishes offers a slightly different flavor that compliments tacos or savory Mexican-style dishes with it’s zesty spiciness. Packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber, this is a very light and healthful snack or appetizer as we look towards spring and summer cooking.
We’ve got some fun food holidays coming up as we turn the corner out of winter and into spring. Some of my favorite recipes have to do with Cinco de Mayo where fresh spring and summer produce takes center stage. I also love that recent research has come out liking eating spicy peppers to living a longer life. If that’s the case, I’ll likely live a very, very long time.
If you like pico and other spicy recipes, check out some of my older posts featuring dishes such as simple spicy guacamole, savory veggie quesadilla, veggie tacos, and homemade enchilada sauce! As you can tell, this is one of my favorite genres of cooking. Feel free to share some of your favorites here in the comments as well as we head into a wonderful season for creativity and new recipes.
