Pico De Gallo...salsa...ceviche...call It What You Will.

This is an awesome, fresh, healty mixture that is really diverse. I use it on grilled skirt steak or chicken tacos, I use it as a salsa for chips, and/or I add shrimp and serve it like ceviche. This is my default summer dish since it's so healthy and I almost always have the ingredients on hand. I served it at a party recently with shrimp in it and everyone loved it! Note: The amounts below are what I find to be a good balance of flavors, they don't need to be exactly these amounts.

    This was AWESOME!! I had it with shrimp on top of corn tostada shells. This was very easy and definitely the best pico de gallo I've had. Way to go LatinaAtHeart!
