Recipe type: Salad
Ingredients
  • 5 Roma tomatoes (diced)
  • 1 large yellow onion (diced)
  • 1 - 2 jalapenos
  • 1 cup of cilantro
  • 1 lime
  • salt
Instructions
  1. Start by dicing up your Roma tomatoes. I like to slice my tomatoes in half and then scoop out the seeds from the center. This is personal preference, but I find the salad stays fresher longer if I remove the seeds.
  2. Next, dice up your onion.
  3. Once the tomatoes and onions were diced, I measured out how much of each I had. The reason behind this is you want an equal ratio of tomatoes to onions in your pico de gallo. I used 4 cups each of tomatoes and onions.
  4. Dump the tomatoes and onions in a big bowl.
  5. Next up are the jalapenos. How many jalapenos you use is completely up to you. If you’re making this for your family, you know how much spice they can handle. If you are making this for a party, I recommend sticking with just one jalapeno so everyone can enjoy it. I removed the seeds and membranes and finely diced mine up.
  6. Add the finely diced jalapeno to the bowl with the tomatoes and onions.
  7. Next, add a cup of cilantro to the bowl.
  8. Give everything a good stir!
  9. In a small bowl, add the juice of one lime.
  10. With the juice in the bowl, sprinkle in some salt.
  11. Pour the lime mixture into the bowl with all the vegetables and give everything one final stir. Make sure to taste it too so you can determine if you need to add a little more salt to the mixture.
  12. Eat immediately or cover and place in your refrigerator until you’re ready to serve.
