Pico Di Gallo / Salsa

How about a fresh condiment which is quick, tasty, easy and no cooking needed.. Sounds too good to be true? Here is a Mexican condiment which is very famous of their cuisine and tastes mind blowing delicious. Its simplicity is just admirable. For part of Taste and Create, I am paired with Tamy. She has a nice blog and a variety of recipes and decorating ideas. I chose this simple salsa recipe from her blog and made some changes to it for our preference.
