Pico De Gallo

If you don't like fresh tomatoes, you may want to stop reading this post( and yes you know who you are).

But if you do like fresh tomatoes then this is the recipe for you! Steve and I both love Pico De Gallo. I experimented with a couple of recipes this weekend and we preferred this one. I think you'll like it too!

8-10 roma tomatoes(I used 4 large beefsteak tomatoes)
1/2 to 1 red onion
1 jalapeno pepper
2 cloves garlic
juice of one lime
1 T olive oil
4 T chopped fresh cilantro(or more to taste, we like cilantro so I used a bit more)
1 tsp. coarse dalt
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
Seed and dice the tomatoes.Finely chop onion, pepper and garlic. Then add the remaining ingredients, mix well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours but is even better the next day. Serve with tortillas. Makes a fairly large bowl full.
