Pico de Gallo (Salsa)

What you need: 

3 medium tomatoes (regular, not roma variety), diced
1 medium red onion, minced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 jalapenos, minced (de-seed for less spice, if desired)
1 cup cilantro, packed, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt [u]Liquid[/u]:
3 Tablespoons Fresh Lime Juice (1 to 2 Limes)
1/2 Medium Tomato, Diced

What you do: 

*This recipe requires overnight refrigeration to let the flavors develop*
1. Salsa: In a non-reactive bowl (do not use metal!), combine the tomatoes, onion, garlic, jalapenos, cilantro, and salt.
2. Liquid: In a small blender (I use a Magic Bullet), put the lime juice and 1/2 tomato; blend until smooth.
3. Add the liquid to the salsa and mix thoroughly.
4. Cover and refrigerate overnight, and enjoy the next day and for days after! Yummmmmmmm

I used this as a rough basis of ratios and it came out really good :). Going to use it in a salad with mixed greens, black beans, and corn. :) thanks!

PS use organic tomatoes! They end up tasting fresh from the garden :)


Great recipe! no need to blend anything... I didn't have a blender and it came out delish. very nice flavors, and worth it to marinate overnight. Thank you!


Hey I wanted to modify this: Scratch the liquid part and just add the extra half of tomato and lime juice with the rest of it, the salsa gets liquid-y enough on its own :)
