Did you know that the Spanish word 'bandera' means flag? Pico de Gallo can also be called Salsa de Bandera because it is made up of the same color as the Mexican flag.

What's great about this recipe is that pico is easy to customize. Want more spice? Add extra jalapeno! Not much of a cilantro person? Leave it out! The exact measurements are up to you, so make it just how YOU like it.

Dice up your tomatoes, onion, cilantro, and jalapeño and add to a large bowl. Mix everything together and add the juice of two limes. Finish the salsa off with a sprinkle of salt and enjoy!
