Pico De Gallo

Posted on
I really should be fired.My sister asked me for a salsa recipe. She wanted one to can.
Fortunately, my friend makes salsa for me – in trade for my wheat bread. As such, I don’t make salsa because his is amazing & he won’t give me the recipe.

I do however make Pico De Gallo. Often. Very Often. I love the stuff – I could eat it by the gallon. I was horrified to discover that my blog was missing this recipe.

Once again, this is an ‘un-scientific’ recipe – meaning that I developed this recipe to perfection – according to my taste. Add more or less to suit your taste.

1 c. diced tomatoes
1 c. diced onion (white or yellow)
1 c. chopped cilantro
approx. 1/3 c. key lime juice
coarse salt

Optional: 1 – 4 finely chopped jalapeños (depending on how much heat you want)

Mix tomatoes, cilantro, & onion together in a bowl.
Add enough key lime juice (either from a bottle or freshly squeezed) to fill the bottom of the bowl approx. 1/4 inch from the bottom.
Add cumin & salt to taste. Mix thoroughly.

* Key limes are a MUST. They have a very distinctive flavor which is key to this recipe. (They look like mini limes.)

**This pico de gallo is fantastic on black beans, eggs, or with rice. It adds a great flavor boost to just about anything.
