Pico de Gallo

Pico de Gallo

Pico de Gallo....

 is a wonderfully versatile dish to have in your repertoire.

Pico de Gallo can be used as a healthy salsa for chips, you can use it as a different bruschetta taste sensation, and add it as a finishing touch to pretty much ANY protein that you’d like to give a touch of southwestern flair!  It would even make a terrific topping for burgers.

I created this recipe particularly for my Grilled Tilapia Pico de Gallo, but as mentioned above, it’s an extremely versatile dish.

Bon Appetit!
