Pico De GalloBy Rita's KitchenThis isn’t a meal, but it’s yummy. Oh, I absolutely love Pico de Gallo—the freshness of tomatoes, the clean flavor of cilantro, the cool, crisp wonderfulness of it all.
Here’s the most important thing I learned about Pico, the tomatoes are only one part of the ultimate product. The jalapenos, the cilantro, the onions—they require equal billing with the tomatoes to make Pico de Gallo work.Bok Choy with Garlic and Chilies (Pair with Miso Salmon)By Rita's KitchenSteve and I watched a cooking show online for Mizo Carmelized Salmon and Bok Choy as a side dish.
