This fresh take on pico de gallo is a sweet snack with fresh pineapple and vegetables! This quick and healthy snack comes together in 10 minutes and the whole family will love it.
This last weekend I was shopping at Maurice’s for some new summer tops seeing it is warming up very quickly in Minnesota. It is time to put away the huge sweaters and jackets that got me through the bitter winter this year. And when I say bitter, I mean it, as in WEEKS straight of negative temps! So now that we have finally escaped the cold, it is time to complain about how hot it is! That is what us Minnesotans do. It is either too darn cold or hot. We get approximately two weeks of perfectly nice 70 degree weather each year. 🙂
So, I found far too many cute things in the store, but nothing was on sale! How can nothing be on sale in a clothing store, isn’t that like mandatory or something?! Well, I just despise paying full price for clothing, so I started scouring my phone for a coupon code, and somehow couldn’t find one of those either! Things were not going my way in the discount department, but my arm was draped with so many beautiful tops that I just couldn’t justify putting any back on the rack. My last resort was to look up a few of the items online to see if there was a price difference. Well, FINALLY, I found some good news. Online, they were all Buy one get one 50% off.
I proceeded to the check-out counter and asked the lady if these shirts where BOGO50%. She replied with a friendly, “No, sorry”. I then mentioned that they were discounted online and she promptly and quietly responded, “Oh, well we can just do that discount for you then.” What the heck?!?! Since when is this how corporate stores operate? I mean, I know I can go to a furniture store or car dealership and try to negotiate a better price, but since when can you do that with clothing chains?
Oh well, I was just happy I got my 25% discount and I was on my way, but you better believe I will be cross checking prices from now on!
So with these hotter temps outside, it is time to find some fresh and healthy snacks to go with it. This Pineapple Pico de Gallo is just the thing! Snack on it with some chips or toss it on a grilled chicken breast for an easy summer dinner.
