Pico de Gallo

I love Pico de Gallo!
It is fresh, healthy, and so easy to make.
You can serve it with Tortilla chips, add it to Guacamole, or 7-layer dip.

Pico de Gallo

-5 plum OR Roma tomatoes (firm, not soft)
- 1/2 large or 1 small onion
- 2 jalapeno peppers
- 1 medium bunch of cilantro
- 1/2 of a lime
- salt

How To Make:

1. Dice tomatoes and onions put in a bowl.

2. Cut the ends off of the jalapenos, scrape the seeds from the jalapenos and discard them. Dice the jalapenos, and to the tomato and onion mixture.

3. Now chop up the bunch of cilantro. You can cut off the long stems before you start, but there’s no need to peel the leaves from the stems. Add to the bowl

4. Squeeze half of the small lime into the bowl. Season with salt (to taste).

*Serve with Tortilla Chips.

*You can also add this mixture to 2 mashed avocados with one or two scoops of sour cream for a yummy Guacamole!
