    Pico de Gallo

    Adding mango to this time-honoured Mexican topping infuses it with a hit of sweetness. You can also use pineapple or peach. It’s wonderful with tortilla chips as well. The salsa can be made up to three days ahead of time and kept covered in the refrigerator, but it’s best served at room temperature.
