Sometimes called, “fresh salsa” though, incidentally, when I googled pico de gallo, I learned salsa is considered a sauce; pico de gallo a condiment. Anyway, this has become something of a Sunday tradition in our home (along with Sunday Afternoon Cookies). We often have nachos, pico de gallo, and guacamole for a quick, yummy, lunch.
It is very nutritious and my children think its delicious. The first time I made it, Jubilee was 3 I think, and she loved it so much she was eating it with a spoon. She didn’t realized you were supposed to dip your chips in it!
Pico de gallo is kind of like fruit salad, no hard and fast recipe, but here’s what’s in it:
4 large tomatoes (chopped and seeded), garlic, chopped green onions, 1 small can chopped green chilies, juice from one lime, jalapeno peppers (I don’t put these in, too hot for me and Chuck), fresh ground pepper, cilantro.
Mix gently, serve with chips, tacos, burritos, whatever. This makes a great side dish on a hot summer day.
