Mondays are always tough, especially when you come back from a holiday weekend. It’s especially harder when you have a 12-hour work day at the office and you’re only up on 4 hours of sleep because your boyfriend accidentally made you non-decaffeinated coffee at 9PM, leaving you to fall asleep at 1:30AM after taking a sleeping pill.

Yeah, like I said, today was a rough day.

So seeing as to how I am writing this post in bed in my PJs ready to pass out, I’ll keep this post nice and short. I just had to share this pico de gallo with you first. It’s a fun twist on the traditional pico de gallo dish as it’s loaded with refreshing watermelon and sweet mango. And with summer upon us, is there anything better than super cold, delicious, ripe watermelon pieces?

Just make sure you have a spoon with you after you make this. You’ll skip over the chips and just dive right in, spoon first!
