Backstory

Pico de gallo is one of those dishes that allows every ingredient to share the spotlight. Tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, and cilantro - each having its own distinct flavor and each contributing equally to the freshness of the dish. Serve it as a dip with chips or as a condiment or garnish with quesadillas or grilled chicken.

Pico has no real recipe - it’s more like a formula or assembly instructions, one that varies from person to person.

Ingredients

  • 1 part jalapeno, finely chopped and seeded
  • 1 part cilantro, chopped
  • 2 parts white onion, chopped
  • 4 parts tomato, seeded and chopped
  • splash of lime juice (a very small splash)
  • pinch of salt

Directions

  • Stir all ingredients together and allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes, stirring once again before serving.
