Add these to your Cinco de Mayo menu!
Okay, so I wanted an excuse to post my new awesome pico de gallo recipe, and my new made-from-scratch margarita mix (which makes a great alternative to limeade if you mix it with San Pellegrino instead of Señor Cuervo), and Cinco de Mayo provided me with a perfect opportunity to do so.
There is nothing fancy about these recipes, but I promise you that they are delish and definitely worth making! I’m not going to fill the page with any fluff, so check out the pico de gallo with mango recipe below. Now, there is a weird one-recipe-per-post issue that I’m having with my recipe card plugin, so you’ll have to snag the margarita recipe here.(psst – no email required, like everything else here at Figs & Chèvre). I promise that it will be worth the extra step! Included with the margarita recipe are shopping lists for both the margaritas and the pico. Enjoy!
Here’s the recipe.
Pico de Gallo with MangoPrint Recipe
- 1 1/2 lbs campari tomatoes, cut into small dice
- 2 ataulfo mangoes, peeled and cut into small dice
- a fistful of fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1 jalapeño pepper, chopped fine
- fresh lime juice, to taste
- sea salt, to taste
- 1/2 small white onion, chopped fine (optional)
Combine all ingredients except for the sea salt in a medium bowl. Adjust the lime juice to taste. Add sea salt (or not) to taste. Serve with tortilla chips or as a garnish for whatever you want to garnish.
Enjoy this pico with copious quantities of tortilla chips and margaritas made from the downloadable recipe. Seriously, they are a match made in heaven!
This recipe makes a LOT of pico and can easily be cut in half.
I’d love your feedback! What makes a great pico? Do you have a favorite margarita recipe that you’re willing to share? I’m all ears!
