Shoepeg Corn Pico de Gallo

Sharing is caring!

I have to admit, I have a thing about salsa, pico, dips, spreads….. You get the point.

Have I mentioned that I’m an appetizer whore?

Why yes, I think I have.

There’s something about the anticipation of a meal… the lingering, the sipping of wine, and of course having an appetizer. I tend to like to drag things out as far as food is concerned. Just ask my husband – there are times (usually when he’s hungry) when the sweet man asks me kindly if I would “please keep the dinner preparation/cooking under 3 hours”.

Doesn’t he understand how much joy I get from all this work I do in the kitchen? I think he does understand it by now, but he definitely doesn’t share the same joy.

So many times when I am making something, feeling all creative, I’m deep down worried that this is going to turn out to be….well, crap. But then it doesn’t!!

What a wonderful feeling.

This was one of those days. Love it.

This is a kind of like a salsa or pico de gallo, but also similar to what my dad called “Indian Salad”, which was really a Greek salad made of cucumber, tomatoes and feta. The possibilities for this is endless.




Refrigerate; and keep in mind the longer it’s there the better it will be.
