Pico de Gallo #Freaky Friday


It’s Friday!  It’s Freaky Friday!  Freaky Friday is a recipe swap I am doing with a great group of bloggers.  I was assigned a blog to pick a recipe from and recreate their recipe. The group of bloggers have no idea who has their blog or know anyone else’s blog or recipes as its been a secret. Today, we are all sharing our recipe posts.  I am sharing Lisa’s delicious recipe for Pico de Gallo from Lisa’s Dinnertime Dish. Lisa is from Minnesota and is a wife and Mom to three children. Her goal is to ensure people to get in the kitchen and cook healthy and affordable meals.


I am anxious to try Lisa’s  Spicy Jalapeño Vinaigrette and her Five Minute Enchilada Sauce! Lisa has some great recipes on her blog and they are not all Mexican and spicy but I am drawn to those. Please be sure you check out her blog and all of the other bloggers and their wonderful recipes.


Ingredients:

4 Roma tomatoes

1/4 cup red onion

1/3 cup cilantro

1 jalapeño

1 lime, juiced

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

Dice the the tomatoes, onions and jalapeño. Add the lime juice to the ingredients and mix to combine.

Bite Me Watermelon


I love fresh fruit and watermelon is one of my favorites. This is a recipe for a savory watermelon and it can be made with or without alcohol. What a great treat to enjoy after a day in the sun or poolside.

Ingredients:
1/2 seedless watermelon, cut in bite size pieces
2 limes, juiced*
2 generous pinches of kosher salt, or more to taste
4 tablespoons of tequila, optional
1/3 cup chopped cilantro, more for garnish

In a large bowl, add all ingredients. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours.

*I roll my citrus fruit on the counter with a firm hand and microwave for 15 seconds a piece to achieve maximum juice.

All watermelons do not grow the same size. The quantities in this recipe might need to be adjusted up or down depending on the size of the melon. I actually used a quarter slice when making this recipe. Enjoy!
