Wildman Pico de Gallo

pico de gallo

Are you ready for EASY and HEALTHY pico de gallo (a fancy word for salsa that’s BETTER than regular salsa)?! I prefer chunky pico over regular ole’ runny salsa!

Ingredients

4-5 ripe tomatoes
1 small onion
1 clove garlic or 1 tsp minced garlic
1-2 jalapeno peppers
6-10 sprigs fresh cilantro
1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp. olive oil
Sea salt

Directions

  • Finely chop tomatoes and onion. Remove seeds from jalapenos (or leave in for hotter pico) and finely chop.
  • Mince garlic (if using whole cloves) and chop cilantro.
  • (or throw it all in a food processor – WAY easier!!!)
  • Didn’t use a processor? Mix well.
  • Salt to taste.
It takes a while for the flavors to blend…it will taste even better tomorrow than it does today!

This is a photo of our most recent pico de gallo day (we’ve eaten half of the large container with the green lid already!), using mainly the tomatoes, onions and jalapenos from our garden. Doesn’t this look YUM?! What are you waiting for?! Go make some!!!

I’ve realized that I need to grow a lot more ingredients for pico next year!
