Classic pico de gallo
SmartPoints® value per serving
Pico de gallo translates as “beak of rooster,” and it’s a ubiquitous Mexican salsa. Sometimes it’s called salsa fresca, and since the ingredients are the colors of the Mexican flag, some call it salsa bandera. Whatever the name, this basic tomato, onion, jalapeño salsa makes everything from chips to chicken taste great.
