This garden fresh easy pico de gallo recipe is a Mexican classic anyone can enjoy. Mexican food is a hit for us because with our 3 kids 5 and under its really the only go out to lunch or dinner option because it’s fast, kid friendly, and affordable! We live in RVA and our favorite restaurant is Pepe’s! We love to have our own Mexican favorites to make at home though, like this easy Pico de Gallo recipe. Add it to your grocery list for your at home Taco Tuesday dinner, a easy appetizer for family or friends, or your next appetizer to take to a get together or pot luck.
