pico de gallo

I ask myself why people buy store-bought pico de gallo or salsa fresca when it is so easy to make. All you have to do is dice up some tomatoes, onions, and chilli peppers, add a few condiments and voila, you are done. Easy enough, right? It'll taste a whole lot better too.

Pico de Gallo
a whole bowl full :-)

8 large tomatoes, chopped
1 large white onion, finely chopped
2 Serrano or JalapeƱo peppers,  de-seeded and minced--as many as you can handle
Juice of 2 lemons or limes
salt and pepper to taste

1. Chop all ingredients and add to bowl.
2. Squeeze lemon or lime juice over chopped ingredients, add salt and pepper.

This is a picture of a pico de gallo I made recently. I used various types of tomatoes from my garden to add color and flavor.
