Easy Pico de Gallo recipe


            Pico de Gallo is a very popular type of salsa/relish that is used in Mexican cuisine.    It is made with fresh tomatoes, onions, and jalapeños.   It is so very tasty and I love that it is so versatile to liven up so many dishes. 

 

  • 3 c. tomatoes, chopped (about 3 lg. tomatoes or 10-12 Roma tomatoes)
  • ½ c. onion, finely chopped (I use a yellow onion)
  • 2-3 T. jalapeños, finely chopped (1-2 jalapeños)
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp. each of salt and pepper
  • ½ c. fresh cilantro, finely chopped (optional)
  • Juice from 1 lime

 Many people use a red/purple onions but I am allergic to them so I always use a white or yellow onion.  Also many people add cilantro but I don’t care for cilantro so I leave it out. 

To prepare, mix all ingredients together in a bowl.  Stir.  Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until ready to use. 


 Serves 4 and each serving has about 5 carbs.
