Pico de Gallo is a Mexican dip that is primarily made of fresh tomatoes, onions, and chili peppers. At our house, we always have a jar of freshly made Pico de Gallo in our fridge. We eat it on everything: from our eggs at breakfast to cheesy quesidillas to use with our BBQ burgers or steaks. We love it. The good news is that it’s quick and easy to make and stays well in the fridge!
Pico de Gallo
4 ripe tomatoes, seeded and diced
1/2 small onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 green pepper, minced
about 1/4 cup minced cilantro
juice of 1/2 lemon
a splash of extra virgin olive oil
cracked black pepper to taste
ground cumin to taste
Combine all ingredients and allow to sit 15-30 minutes for flavors to blend. Yes. It’s that easy.
