Rooster’s Beak (pico de gallo)


Did you know that you were asking for rooster’s beak when you order pico de gallo at the Mexican restaurant? I didn’t. I thought I knew some Spanish, I knew gallo for rooster, but I didn’t put it together, and this came as a big surprise to me. According to Winkled, this salad is called rooster’s beak, because they use to eat with two fingers, like a pecking rooster. Too funny! This is my simple recipe for rooster’s beak. This dish is very easy and flavorful and can be served along side many different Spanish inspired dishes.
