Sweet Little Pico De Gallo Twist!


Yesterday, Samantha and I were craving salads. We wanted some pico to throw on top, but the store didn’t have any, so…we made our own!:) Usually pico has cilantro and for some reason, I think cilantro taste like dish soap…so we omitted it. We also put a little sweet and spicy spin to it.


Ingredients: *6 extra ripe large roma tomatoes, diced *1 medium white onion finely diced, *1 small jalapeño pepper, diced & seeded (ours sank to the bottom 🙂 *1 tsp garlic powder, *1/2 Tbsp brown sugar, 1/2 tsp southwest seasoning, *1 tsp low sodium soy sauce, *1/2 lime, juiced. *salt & pepper to taste…

Mix all ingredients together and let them chill in the fridge for 20 minutes! I’ll upload the salad we made to go with the pico right after this post!

    I found out this weekend that it’s actually a genetic thing if you think cilantro tastes like dish soap. It happens to a lot of people so you’re not alone.

    There’s actually a certain percentage of the population who taste cilantro differently (like dish soap) than what it actually tastes like. Has something to do with an enzyme.

    I think cilantro tastes like dish soap! I’m so grateful someone else thinks that because my roommates don’t believe me!
