Pico de Gallo - Chunky Salsa

Pico de gallo is basically a chunky style salsa, that is made with fresh tomatoes, onions, cilantro and chilies. One advantage that it has over salsa is there is less liquid, and that makes it a perfect filling for tacos and burritos. I love using it as a side salad with any Mexican type meal I make. It's also really tasty with breakfast burritos, or when used as a dip with tortilla chips.



Pico de Gallo - Chunky Salsa

Ingredients

2 cups tomatoes, seeded and chopped (sometimes I get lazy and leave the seeds in)
1/2 cup onion, chopped (about 1 small)
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped (be careful when handling peppers, and use plastic gloves as you prepare them)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 lime, juiced
1 handful cilantro, chopped
Sea salt to taste

Directions

Mix everything together in a large bowl and store covered in the fridge for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to mingle.


Notes: Pico de Gallo will last up to 3 days covered and refrigerated.

*To give this recipe more heat, just add more jalapenos to taste.

    1. I hope you get to try it Helen, I love using this in place of regular salsa when I want something heartier, that I can serve on a dinner plate as a side salad.
