there is nothing like fresh pico.. everyone in our house loves it.. i make it at the beginning of the week even if we aren't having mexican food, just because shell loves to just have it on a tortilla for a snack or pete loves it on fresh made corn chips.. i like to add it to my blue cheese wedge salads.. it's so simple to make and you can really add anything you want.. the basics are onion, tomato, cilantro and jalapeño.. but after that you can add cucumber, radishes, zucchini, jicama.. the possibilities are endless.. have fun with it..
