Pico de Gallo



I love pico de gallo because it adds a lovely freshness to your tacos, burritos, or anything Mexican you are having that day. It's great with chips and the next day with your scrambled eggs. I first discovered it when I visited Mexico and it makes my mouth water just thinking about all the ingredients blended together.  

Its great to make for a party. It doesn't take much time and your guests will be very happy. You can make it early in the day and serve later. Try it and let me know what you think. 


Ingredients

1 Roma tomato diced
1/2 jalapeno seeded and diced
1 tablespoon cilantro chopped
1 clove of garlic minced
2 tablespoons red onion diced
1/2 lime juice
salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Add all ingredients to a bowl, stir and let sit for 30 min to 1 hour before using or serving.  You can double but I like to use this the day of because I find the fresh tomatoes get to soft over time. Double if
