Pico de Gallo

I had a salad this week that stopped me in my eating tracks.  There was a lot going on with said salad.  Which made my mind drift from the company at the table.  No disrespect, but whoa what a salad.

In my mind’s voice (also known as “In my head”) I dissected this salad, “What was that? Is that a schmear of black beans under the bed of lettuce.  Holy heck, will you look at that shard of golden fried tortilla.  This isn’t your every-day ‘Pico’ with that lime punch.  Wait.  Big lime flavor with a subtle coconut nuance.  Unexpected.  Completely fresh and inspirational.”

We’ll call this Pico de Gallo {Put The Lime In The Coconut}.
