Avocado Pico De Gallo “cocktail” from Vegetarian Times

New Olreans view It’s hot and as I said from my many years of being stationed in the south I developed what might have been my natural inclination toward hot foods.

I found them a secret to helping stay cool as I found unsweetened ice tea to be a help also. It cools. On the hottest days you would find me in the shade with some nicely spiced hot food and a large glass or unending pitcher of plain ice tea. It worked.

I also liked nibblers. The Avocado Pico De Gallo would have been classified as a nibbler for me. Sit back, nibble away and watch the world sweat by. Now that is my type of living.

Waiter! More sun tan lotion.

A nice little salad type salsa or perhaps it is a salsa type salad, you decide, making a nice addition to your meals.
