Pico De Gallo Recipe

Salsa is the number one condiment in America, and what’s not to love about it?  It’s sweet and spicy, goes great with chips, on burgers, in tacos, with salmon, or almost anything else.  To say it is versatile is an understatement.  It is also easy to make.  Making your own salsa or pico de gallo has a ton of benefits over the store-bought variety.  First, you can control the heat perfectly for your tastes.  Second, you know exactly what is in it.  Finally, fresh pico de gallo will taste better than anything that comes out of a jar.  This pico de gallo recipe is simple, clean, and fresh.  Enjoy!
