The literal translation of the name of this sauce is «cock’s Beak«, apparently due to its vibrant colors and spicy, slightly sharp taste. Ripe tomatoes, lime juice,fresh coriander and tangy chili — ingredients, more than traditional for Mexico, almost universal. Pico de Gallo Salsa is used as a condiment for roasted and grilled meat, fish, seafood, fahity and tacos, and sometimes just scoop it dip or Pitta bread corn chips.

Alas, but Cook this sauce more, pro stock, is unlikely to succeed, but if you have good, delicious tomatoes and five minutes of free time, evening, flavored with bright taste, you provided. Sauce without problems is stored in the refrigerator for a few days, but the tomatoes give juice pretty quickly, and I recommendyou eat it the same day.
