I like bold spices so maybe this is just me but I found it kind of bland. Some of that may be that the Jalapeno pepper I had was really mild. I spiced it up at serving time by adding some pickled Jalapeno peppers on top and stirring in a few Kalamata olives and tossing in some more salt and black pepper. Next time I might try adding some hot sauce Read More

Thanks for this great idea for New Years Eve. Such a relief to have something so fresh and healthy after all that holiday season food. I made it per the directions. It was gobbled up with blue corn tortilla chips. the fresh cilantro and fresh lime juice were key. Read More

This was delicious. I made it without the jalapeño pepper since I didn't have one. The recipe makes a lot I had enough to share with the neighbors (who were very grateful). Make sure to let the pico de gallo macerate before mixing with the peas for a blended and pronounced flavor. Read More
