Zucchini Pico de Gallo Salsa

This fresh Zucchini Pico de Gallo Salsa is a tasty way to use up extra squash, and just look at that great color! The recipe is flexible and can be modified to use what you have, add or subtract depending upon what's on hand. While intended as a snack, I can see this served with grilled chicken or easily topping some beans as a meal. And don't hesitate to make a nice big batch folks, leftovers can be stirred into hot rice for a quick side dish. This is what summer is all about:@)
