Expert Tips

I recommend using a special vegetable cutter so the vegetables look more attractive. This botanita can be used for many occasions, including as a snack for kids at school.

In Northern Mexico, temperatures can get very hot during certain times of the year. I remember that my aunt Titi used to make a refreshing appetizer with diced vegetables and oranges that she called “pico de gallo.” To spoil my husband in Father's Day, I decided to add this childhood recipe to this special menu, which can be complemented with a delicious white wine sangria. We now live in Orlando, which is also very hot during the summer, so this dish is excellent for celebrating this special day. Let's cook!

Directions

  • 1 Arrange the fruit and vegetables in a large plate and add the lemons, salt and pequin pepper.
