This is one of our favorite and hopefully one of many Pico De Gallo Recipes. It’s like combining two party favorites together to make them better.

Very quick to make, you simply chop, chop, and serve. Use your favorite healthy chips or slice a cucumber and use that as a chip. This recipe is pretty mild although you can spice it up with some jalapeno if you like some spice.
