Pico de Gallo "Rooster's Beak" Salsa | Naturally Vegan Fresh Salsa

To pair with the breakfast tacos, here is the pico de Gallo or “rooster’s beak” salsa I made with @connor.cooks.

There are many stories about its name but my favorite and easiest to remember is: all ingredients need to be cut small enough so a rooster can peck at it with its beak.

This salsa is one of my favorites and brings with it a lot of nostalgia. It was the first thing I learned to make in the kitchen at 12 or 13 years old. My dad has always instilled a sense of independence in us from an early age and cooking is one of those first skills we learned. So there my young brothers and I were making salsa, eggs and quesadillas to familiarize ourselves with the knives and heat in the kitchen. Well, you know where that ended up! 😄( I became a chef)
