RECIPE: Kid-Friendly Pico De Gallo Salsa

Sometimes it's hard to get kids to eat vegetables, or even anything with a little spice. Sometimes chips or dip can help with those challenges. I had a CostCo size bag of corn chips that I have been trying to make a dent in for weeks. I kept getting creative with what I could serve them with...and when! This is one of the dips I created that is very mild for kids, yet very tasty for adults. It is best to use garden ripened tomatoes for this. It really makes the dip. Also, if you wish to make a more sophisticated version, substitute the vinegar for lime juice, add some cilantro and a tablespoon of minced jalepeno to spice it up (add 2-3 peppers, if you are daring.)

Kid Friendly Pico De Gallo

1 mild pepper (such as Annaheim or Bannana, minced)
