Pico de Gallo

There is something so simple and perfect about pico de gallo. It's essentially three fresh, healthy ingredients blended together with additional spices to create a powerful, flavorful garnish. As a California native, I practically consider Mexican food a food group and find myself eating some form of it almost everyday. This pico de gallo is the perfect dish to add some freshness to those meals.
