Pico de Gallo

For this recipe you would normally use Roma tomatoes any day of the year. But when summer hits, any kind of tomato will be fine. I really like doing this with Sungolds cut in half through the belly button, or wedges of early girl tomatoes. As long as they are ripe you will be fine.—Sal Avida
