Pico de Gallo. Living in Southern California, it is almost impossible not to be in tune with México. Take Cinco de Mayo (May fifth in Spanish), the Mexican civil holiday that commemorates the Battle of Puebla. It is celebrated mostly in Puebla, México but overall in the United States.In the Battle of Puebla, held on May 5th 1862, a Mexican army, defeated French forces which were twice the number of Mexicans. It seems that Mexicans living in California by the time of the American Civil War, which ended in 1865, were the first celebrating Cinco de Mayo in the US.Today, in America, Cinco de Mayo symbolizes Mexican heritage and pride. So I decided to celebrate it with this pretty simple, yet flavorful pico de gallo or salsa fresca, whose colors are the same as those of the Mexican flag!I hope you like it, have a happy Cinco de Mayo and Viva México!
