This is a light, refreshing salsa to serve with fish or chicken. It can stay good overnight one night, but that's about its limit. I rarely have to worry about leftovers, if there is any someone eats it as a salad.
I had a small portion of a Yellow Globe left, but didn't feel like having any more straight watermelon. This was the perfect way to finish it off- sweet and hot in the perfect combination. I served it as part of an appetizer with smoked sausages, habanero cheese, and crackers- but this would also be very nice on fish, or a variety of grilled meats. Cook time is sitting time.
My friend and I just started experimenting with Indian food, since there are no good restaurants where we live. This is a fabulous dipping sauce for Veggie Samosas (my favorite,)bread, fritters, the sky is the limit!
Obviously sweet because of the fruit but a slight hint of heat because of the pepper. We love this on grilled ahi, steamed uhu or aweoweo. I worked out this recipe after several failed attempts. We are blessed to live in Hawaii where fresh-off-the-tree fruit and great pineapples are easy to find, but try it anyway. As a variation, skip the pineapple and use chopped, seeded cucumber. Enjoy!
Pico de Gallo translates to "rooster's beak" in English (when you dip tortilla chips into it, your thumb and forefinger loosely resemble a pecking chicken). Didn't you always wonder where the name came from?
Yeah Mon! This cool and refreshing fruit salsa is a perfect side accompaniment for tempering the heat of your favorite grilled jerk seasoned meat. Cooking time is the time to chill. Submitted for RSC #8.
