Cinco de Mayo is almost here, so I thought I’d post some of my favorite fresh Mexican food recipes.
Today we have Pico de Gallo!
Pico de Gallo
3C diced tomatoes – Roma, heirloom, whatever you have
1/2C minced white onion
1/2C minced red onion
1/2C chopped cilantro
Juice of 1 Lime
1 minced jalapeno – with seeds and ribs if you like it hotter – even more jalapenos if you like it really hot
Salt and pepper to taste – but don’t leave them out – tomatoes need salt and don’t forget the fresh ground pepper
Optional – for an interesting twist – dice 2-3 tomatillos and add them – they lend a lemony tartness that is great!
Mix together and put in refrigerator for an hour or longer.
Use as a side dish, or in place of salsa.
