Pico de Gallo

Fresh, fresh, fresh! This classic uncooked salsa brings a punch of flavour to anything it touches whether it's simply served with tortilla chips or alongside grilled, roasted, or pan-fried fish, pork, chicken, or beef. Spicy, garlicky, and a little acidic, it's the perfect blend.

Ingredients

  • 3 vine ripened tomatoes
  • 1/2 of a purple or sweet onion trimmed of both ends and peeled
  • 1/2-1 whole fresh jalapeno pepper
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro or parsley roughly chopped.
  • 1 large clove of garlic peeled and minced
  • the juice of one lime
  • kosher salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Cut the tomatoes into wedges and hold upside down over a bowl. Use your fingers to remove all the seeds and liquidy centers of the tomato. Cut the tomatoes into thin strips and then turn the strips and cut crosswise into 1/8 to 1/4-inch cubes. Add these to a small mixing bowl.
  2. Cut the onion into thin strips, then turn and cut crosswise into 1/8 to 1/4-inch cubes. Add these to the tomatoes.
  3. Remove the stem end of the jalapeno pepper and use a spoon to scrape out the seeds and membranes. Cut the jalapeno into thin strips, then turn crosswise and cut into the smallest cubes possible. Add these to the tomatoes and onions along with the remaining ingredients and toss to evenly distribute everything.
  4. Serve immediately.
