My girlfriend Kate came over the other day, and we had cooking on the agenda to create some recipes for the Slightly Homemade Dinners cookbook. A Catalina Taco Salad (yes, yum... right?) was on the list, and we needed some pico for garnish.

She followed with,

Then, in he walks, with a whole chicken hanging...
