Pico de Gallo

There are all kinds of salsas, but my favorites have always been the simple salsas like Pico de Gallo. If using fresh ingredients, Pico de Gallo can be one of the most flavorful salsas imaginable. I like to serve this side dish as an appetizer for Mexican dinner parties. Next week's blog will be Puerco Pibil, and this Pico de Gallo was a great compliment to the spicy pork of Puerco Pibil.

1 White Onion, 1/4" dice
4 JalapeƱos, minced
4 Tomatoes, 1/4 dice
1/4 C. Cilantro, chopped
1/4 C. Lime Juice
1 tsp. Salt

I remove the over-powering onion aroma by rinsing them under cold water. Combine the onion, jalapeƱos, tomatoes, cilantro, and lime in a bowl. Toss well to combine and season with salt.
