pico de gallo verde 2Open my refrigerator and you will find a giant mason jar on the right side of the top shelf.  Next to the essentials: eggs, milk and tortillas.  Inside this jar is a pico de gallo like no other.  A green one.  Not a Roma tomato is in sight of this cherished medley of tangy, spicy chunky salsa and its  juices.  When the jar runs low every few days it is instantly replaced by a new batch.

Pico de gallo verde

This pico de gallo travels from the refrigerator to the kitchen table at least six times a day, every day, back and forth. Scooped on carne asada, tostadas, salads and my favorite, sunny-side-up eggs.

The tanginess of the tomatillo in this recipe combines perfectly with the spicy, chopped, pickled jalapeños and tiny pieces of carrots that make this salsa that much prettier to look at and enjoy.  I like to use La Morena pickled jalapeños I usually find at my local Ralph’s Supermarket. Because their plump jalapeños are full of flavor, just a few give this recipe that burst of spice it needs that makes it so unique.

Make a big batch of this new pico de gallo and get ready to have a space designated to it in your refrigerator.  Your family will love it and will request it at every meal just like my family did.

La Morena products are perfect when it comes to traditional Mexican cooking.  For more information, visit La More online or follow them on Facebook for the latest news.
