Authentic Pico de Gallo

  • by

Another favorite topping of mine for any type of Mexican food is Pico De Gallo. It’s like a chunky salsa without the tomato paste but it adds such a great fresh flavor to just about any foods or sauce. You can use it on top of sandwiches or tacos/burritos. You can add it to cheese for a quick dip or topping.  It’s healhty, quick and easy to make and just delicious!
