It was Cinco de Mayo and we enjoyed homemade margaritas, salsa, guacamole, and other Mexican-inspired yumminess.
Today I whipped up some pico de gallo and thought I’d share the recipe as we get closer to the weekend, May 5, and the Cinco de Mayo celebration! If you’re craving some heat in your life, forage in your fridge and cupboard and you can make some of this too!
