If you find yourself in a love pickle— you love salsa and you love pickles— make this pickle de gallo! It’s the ultimate marriage of flavors and has all the makings of a scrumptious salsa, sans tomatoes, for a unique taste you can relish. This snack-able, top-able, and delectable condiment is about to rock your plate. It’s a pretty big dill. 

Some recipe notes:

• I’m biased to using dill pickles, but certainly, any type of pickle will work well.

• I love fresh dill, but my daughters do not share my passion, lol. They prefer this pickle creation with either minced cilantro or basil.. or anything other than dill, haha.

• You decide whichever herb suits your palate!

• Feel free to add some diced cucumber, or you can even swap in cukes for the bell pepper if you prefer.
