Pico de Gallo

I just made The Pioneer Woman's Pico de Gallo and it's so good I decided to post it. You can just as easily go over to her blog and find it there I'm sure. She says the secret to making great Pico de Gallo is making sure there are equal parts of onion, tomato, and cilantro. Not just a lot of tomatoes and hints of everything else. It's easy, healthy, and delicious for summer. I have a feeling I'll be posting her stuff in the near furture. My Grandma let me borrow her cookbook for a couple weeks and I want to try making most everything in it.

  • Yellow or red onion
  • Roma tomatoes
  • Cilantro
  • Jalapeños
  • Lime
  • Salt
  • Dice up the onion, tomatoes, and cilantro; equal in quantity to each other.
  • Slice in half then dice very fine 1 or 2 jalapeños. Scrape out the seeds with a spoon. If you like some spice, leave some of the white membranes. 
  • Dump everything into a bowl, squeeze half a lime over everything, and mix
  • Sprinkle with salt. She suggests tasting with a chip so you don't over salt.
