Fresh Pico de Gallo
Fresh Pico de Gallo with Roma tomatoes, garlic, onion, cilantro, jalapeno and serrano peppers and a splash of lime juice.
Cinco de Mayo is around the corner and I can’t help but have my mind on Mexican cuisine. One of the simplest and freshest salsas I make is this fresh Pico de Gallo. So great for a dip with tortilla chips or on top of chicken fajitas. Plus you can have the salsa prepared in under 5 minutes. Winning!
There are really no special tips and tricks for this recipe. It is crazy easy to throw together. Just make sure to use all fresh ingredients. Mushy tomatoes or cilantro that isn’t green and bright, could kill the taste. If your lime isn’t very juicy, you can squeeze 2 into the mixture. A nice tip to get the most out of your lime, use the palm of your hand to roll the lime on the counter before cutting and squeezing. I have also popped them into the microwave for 20 seconds to get the most juice possible from them.
