You officially have the newest, most delicious addition to Taco Tuesday, and it involves avocado. And if it involves tacos and avocado, you can't go wrong, right? We can't decide if this is a chunky salsa, a pico, or maybe like pico and guac had a baby, but we're just gonna go with avocado pico de gallo for simplicity’s sake. But this isn't your average pico.
First off, it's pretty to look at-- super colorful and filled with vibrant ingredients. But most importantly, the flavor is unique and DELICIOUS. Jalapeño to give it a nice kick, some lime for refreshing citrus, and a little coconut nectar for a touch of sweetness, just to name a few of the star components to this pico.

We're always looking for simple ways to take a typical dish and add something to spice it up. This avocado pico is perfect for just that. You can add it to your tacos, use it as a topping for fish, toss it together with salad, or just dip with chips. It's a step up from the usual salsa or guac, making it a great party food, too. We promise it'll be a crowd pleaser.
