Pico de Gallo

The husband is a diehard salsa lover. He eats it numerous times a week as a snack with tortilla chips and loves putting it on just about anything. I am more of a pico person. I love the freshness of pico de gallo, and I think it adds a burst of freshness to what can be otherwise heavy Mexican food. 

You can buy prepared Pico in the produce section, but it’s beyond easy. If you have a knife, you can make pico de gallo. Plus, then you can customize it to your own palate. 

I like to mix regular tomato with grape tomatoes – I love the sweet pop that the grape tomato brings.
