Pico de gallo

Love making pico de gallo.  The colors and the taste of fresh ingredients can't be bet.

Preparation Time: 25 minutes

3 firm roma tomatoes
1/2 medium-size red onion, diced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, diced
1 large jalapeno, diced
fresh lime juice
salt to taste

Combine all ingredients and add lime juice and salt to taste.  So the flavors can really come through, place in fridge for at least 2 hrs before serving.  But if you're in a hurry, don't worry as it's still going to taste great.

  • Depending on the time of year, the jalapenos may not be very hot.  So if you really want your pico to have some kick, try adding habaneros as well.  Remember - wear gloves when preparing habaneros.
