Pico De Gallo is the perfect recipe to use up all of those lovely summer tomatoes.
Pico de Gallo also makes the best, healthy snack. My favorite summer activity is going to the farmer's market. Here in the Midwest, there are plenty to choose from. Every Thursday, I take my dog for a walk down to the local market. I love the farmer's market, and always seem to come home with more produce than I can carry. Although, to be honest, tomatoes aren't my favorite unless they are paired with something, but I do love salsa. Specifically, this salsa because it's so simple, and it really showcases the freshness of the vegetables. Now, this recipe is nothing mind-blowing as I'm sure there are plenty of very similar recipes out there. However, I wanted to post this recipe because I do use it a lot in my fish taco recipe.
