Sandwich Ideas with Pico de Gallo
Pico de Gallo is a condiment of Mexican origin. It is a simple, fresh sauce, or salsa. At its easiest to create, Pico de Gallo is usually made with tomatoes, onions, peppers, cilantro leaves, salt, and lime. Jalapenos are the peppers used by many, but some people use serrano or habanero peppers. These ingredients are finely diced and their flavors are allowed to mingle.
Pico de Gallo is a wonderful way to add flavor to a traditional sandwich or wrap. It's easy to spread a bit of flavor into your favorite sandwich. The condiment enhances Southwestern, Mexican, Indian, and Middle Eastern cuisines. Here are sandwich ideas that use Pico de Gallo.
