Pico de Gallo


    I ♥ pico de gallo. Not only for mexican dishes, but for all kinds of food. It's great on salads, steaks, and chicken among other things! This was the first time I'd ever made pico at home, and it was super easy. There's really nothing to it, other than dicing up a few tomatoes, jalapenos and onion. Add a few squeezes of fresh lime juice and a sprinkle of kosher salt. Mix it all together and you are good to go! YUM!




Pico de Gallo

5 plum tomatoes
2 jalapenos
1/4- 1/2 small red onion
1 lime
cilantro
kosher salt, to taste

Directions:  Dice tomatoes, onion and jalapenos in a very small dice. (Remove seeds from jalapenos for less heat) Place all the chopped veggies in a medium bowl. Add in some fresh, chopped cilantro (as much as you prefer). Stir all together and then squeeze in the juice of one lime. Add a sprinkling of kosher salt and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

I love Pico! And your's look right up my alley because your onions are a nice small dice. I hate biting into a huge chunk of raw onion! Happy Cinco de Mayo!

My docket clerk buys this stuff by the tub-ful from the grocery store for her omelettes. I told her it would be easier to make it herself. I'm copying your recipe for her!

I love Pico de Gallo. Unfortunately I am the only one un my family so I haven't gotten. The chance to make it myself. Your blog is so deliciously amazing, by far one of the best I have come across. I will be making a ton of your recipes hands down. Thank you so much for sharing :)

I love pico, too...especially if it has a little heat to it. We put it on everything when we have it around. Yours sounds great!
