My Pico de Gallo

Up to now I always purchased Pico de Gallo for 2 reasons – 1. I didn’t much care what was in my food as long as it tasted good; and 2, I didn’t consume enough Mexican food to keep it around. Neither of those reasons is true now. This salsa fresco is good on anything Mexican and probably lots of other things too.
