Homemade Salsa Fresca / Pico de Gallo

Salsa Fresca (also know as Pico de Gallo) ~ simple goodness
Last years veggie garden...

Last night, I went through a gardening photo album & came across a bunch of  pictures of my garden/tomatoes & the salsa I make when my tomato plants are producing like crazy.

Below is my simple recipe for Salsa Fresca ~also know as Pico de Gallo.   It's super easy to make & very tasty.  You can add additional ingredients/spices to suite your mood or to use what you have available in your veggie bin ~ or veggie garden, depending on the time of year.

Lots & lots of ripe tomatoes...

So, if you are looking for another Mexican dish to add to your Cinco de Mayo
celebration, make a big bowl of this salsa, grab a bag of tortilla chips & munch away!  :)
