This classic Pico de Gallo recipe will become your new go to chip dip. Try it on tacos, grilled meat or seafood, or toss it with pasta and chicken for a quick pasta salad. You can use standard extra virgin olive oil in this recipe, but a chile-infused olive oil, like We Olive Jalapeno Olive Oil, is also delicious. Eliminate the fresh jalapenos if using. We Olive Garlic Olive Oil also works nicely here!
