Salsa Fresca (Pico De Gallo)

  Salsa fresca (sometimes called pico de gallo) is very easy to make.  Since there is no cooking involved, it can be prepared in minutes and it offers a fresh flavor that the jarred (and therefore cooked) salsas from the store can’t match.  It is the perfect accompaniment for tacos, burritos, beans or tortilla chips.

"Pico de gallo" is Spanish for "rooster's beak."
