Pico de Gallo II

This is classic, unadulterated pico de gallo. Be sure that all vegetables are finely chopped. If you want hotter salsa, switch to thinly sliced serranos.

  • 4 ripe plum tomatoes, seeded, finely chopped (about 1 pound)
  • 1 small white onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 4 fresh jalapeños, seeded, finely chopped (or serranos)
  • juice of one lime
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Mix tomatoes, onion, cilantro, jalapeños and lime juice. Add salt to taste. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, and serve the same day made.
  2. Makes 2 to 2-1/2 cups.
