Pico de Gallo

This is an extremely easy recipe for a great condiment for any southwestern meal or it is great with corn chips.


1 Medium Onion (I prefer red onions)

2 Large Tomatoes

2 Tablespoons chopped fresh Cilantro

1 Clove Garlic Finely minced

1/2 of a Lime (juiced)

S & P to taste

Like I said this is a real simple recipe. Finely chop the Onion, Tomatoes, and Cilantro and mix in a bowl. Add the lime juice and the garlic, add preferred amount of S&P.

*TIP* Raw garlic can be over whelming for some. To help tame it, put the garlin in a pan on the stove with 2 tablespoons olive oil. After 5 minutes take the garlic out, chop it up and add to your Pico de Gallo. Don't throw out that olive oil, use it just as you would regular olive oil to add a great yet subtle taste of garlic to other dishes!
