One of Our Late Summer Traditions

Every year, for several years now, our family has had this tradition of going to our local 'Farmer's Market' on Friday evenings in August and September. We get various locally grown produce items, but almost always get the ingredients for fresh Pico de Gallo.

Rowen always makes it, as Janet can't tolerate the fumes! It always turns out a little different, depending on the ratios of the ingredients, but includes tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, anaheim peppers, onions, garlic, sometimes raw corn (cut off the cob), salt and lemon juice. We just started calling Rowen's concoction "Chicken Lips" loosely translated and Americanized from the Spanish "Rooster's Beak".
