Mexican Take-Out Pico De Gallo

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by TxGriffLover

Almost a salad, this colorful, uncooked salsa is often found as a side on almost any Mexican restaurant platter. For that reason, it's what most people think of when you say 'salsa'. It's fresh, attractive, and worthy of the attention. From the Take-Out Menu Cookbook.

Great treat for an appetizer while were were RV'ing, and very easy to put together. i left the seeds in the chili for added heat! I used red onion. I think I will add some fresh corn next time for a variation.
