One of the things that I like about Pico de Gallo is that it uses fresh ingredients that can be found in any season. Feel free to add mango or papaya for an added twist. Remember, cooking should be fun and you shouldn’t be scared to explore flavors in order to make it your own. Pico de Gallo can be served as an appetizer with tortilla chips. It can also be used as a side with a nice fish or grilled steak. As you explore with the ingredients, you will see that Pico de Gallo is not limited to be used with Mexican food.
