Low-Point Chicken with Strawberry Avocado Pico de Gallo

Yum

Pico de Gallo, pronounced peek-o-day-GY-o, also called salsa fresca, is a fresh, uncooked condiment made with tomatoes, onion, chilis or jalapeños. You can also vary the recipe using other fresh ingredients. It is a refreshing combination of sweetness, tanginess, with just enough spice to keep you coming back for more. Perfect with chicken, tacos, tortilla chips, or just by the spoonfuls!
