Pico de Gallo Salsa

Spring has finally arrived here in Scotland and as we're expecting some reasonably good weather over the coming weekend, we've decided to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. As I dust off the warm weather recipes, like Crunchy Fish Tacos with Mango Sauce , Chicken and Bean Burritos with Mexican Street Corn , Mexican Venison Sausage and Bean Stew for the Slowcooker or Mexican Bean Stew with Green Rice, I always make some Pico de Gallo as an accompaniment. When I work with these flavours, and like nothing better than polishing off the remains with some tortilla chips. Yum!
