In Spanish Pico de Gallo means “Rooster’s beak”. This fresh condiment is made from tomatoes, onions, chilis and other spices such as lime juice or lemon juice. Traditionally in Mexico lemon juice is added. In some parts of Mexico Pico de Gallo can also refer to a fruit salad. This Mexican salsa is used the same way other salsas or chutneys are used, although this has less liquid in it. Pico de Gallo is used in fajita dishes and tacos.
