We lived in Southren California for a while and my parents had a eclectic group of friends. When we got together for Barbecues, this “Pico de Gallo was always on the table.

The sweetnes of the Jicama and apple, with the tang of the citrus, and the heat of peppers make a awesome flavor combination.
