Pico de Gallo

I love Pico de Gallo! It's such a fresh, crisp salsa that is quick and easy to make! If we are having people over it's easy to make a big batch for people to snack on. Pico de Gallo, literally translates to "Rooster's Beak." Some say it was called that because it was originally eaten like a finger food, pinching it with your finger and thumb, which looked like a rooster's beak. This is my recipe for Pico de Gallo, I'm sure there is a ore traditional recipe out there, but this is how I make it!

4 firm Roma Tomatoes
1 small White Onion
1 Jalapeño
Cilantro (a nice handful)
1 clove of Garlic
Salt and Pepper

Now, however you like to chop your veggies is up to you. I like to dice all the tomatoes, onion, and jalapeño very small because I think it stays on a chip/taco better, but if you like it chunkier then do a bigger dice!

So dice your tomatoes, onion, and jalapeño and mix them together. Mince your garlic and cilantro and stir that in. Last season with salt and pepper. I let mine set in the fridge for a bit to help he flavors develop, but it will taste just as good if you eat it right away!

I used this on my Potato Nachos, Click Here for the recipe!
