Fresh Pico de Gallo

Fresh Pico de Gallo is a staple for Mexican and TexMex meals.   It’s so easy to make.  Fresh tomatoes, some finely chopped white (or red)onion, jalapeno, cilantro and lime brings this Mexican condiment to life!   I can’t imagine having fajitas with out Pico de Gallo.  This really awesome in the summertime when tomatoes are in their prime.   What makes Pico de Gallo so amazing is the fresh flavors that bring your dishes to life.  You can make Fresh Pico de Gallo a day ahead of serving, just give it a nice stir with a fork or spoon, maybe one more squeeze of a fresh lime, just to wake it up, and you’re ready to go.   Muy bueno!
