Spanish for “ROOSTER’S BEAK” – is a relish made of finely chopped ingredients such as Jicama Oranges, Onions, Bell Peppers, Jalapeno Peppers and cucumber along with various seasonings.

This is a recipe that will reflect the regional or family style of tastes and preparations. This would be a great accompaniment to any grill out or southern and south western style of meal. This is a dish that will keep for several days under refrigeration properly sealed. This is also a very flexible dish given you can use any fresh produce from your garden or your local grocery store or farmers market. Pico De Gallo
