Salsa Fresca (Pico de Gallo) – A traditional Mexican recipe that is full of flavor, fresh and you can make it as spicy as you would like.
September 16th is Mexican Independence Day and to celebrate, I’ll be posting 1 salsa recipe each day until then! The blog post will be very short and will only focus on the recipe – and some photos of course 🙂 . I hope you stop by to check out all of the upcoming salsas!
For now, enjoy this Pico de Gallo salsa that is one of the easiest to make and most versatile. It goes with everything! This recipe was actually one of my first recipes on this blog (back 07/11!!!) but I felt the need to repost with some updated photos.
