Pico de Gallo
Fresh salsa or Pico De Gallo is a summer staple when the tomatoes start to ripen and is best served immediately after making it – don’t worry it usually doesn’t last long enough to worry about storing anyway! This will be one of easiest summer dishes you ever make – and don’t tell the kids, but it’s awfully healthy.
(Makes about 9 cups of salsa)
4 pounds, ripe beefsteak or plum tomatoes, chopped (with or without skin)
3 cups, chopped onion
1 cup, chopped fresh cilantro
3 small jalapeño peppers, seeds removed, chopped (use hotter peppers if you prefer)
6 tablespoons, freshly squeezed lime juice
6 cloves of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
Stir all ingredients and serve immediately with chips or fresh veggies.
