Happy Cinco de Mayo! And what better day to share my version of my oh so fantastic pico de gallo, or as I call it, super freshy salsa.
I love me some freshy salsa, It makes me oh so happy.
I make this stuff all the time, especially during the warmer months and tomato season. I usually make a batch right before a meal, just enough to eat right away, but sometimes I 'll make a big batched of it, thinking I'll save some for the next day. It never makes it past the second day in the fridge because it's just one of those things that when you see it, you want to eat it. Weird but true. And it's totally ok to do so cause it's basically eating a big bowl of healthy goodness, so eat on!
It takes no time to prepare, tastes super refreshing, goes on everything, and it's just so freaking tasty. You can eat it with tacos and chips (the mister) or like me, I like to add it to everything; salads, popcorn, or directly in my mouth.
Make one batch, make 4, it doesn't matter cause you will eat it all, and need to make more.
The stuff. Chopped Roma tomatoes, chopped red onion, a diced jalapeño, lemon, a bunch of cilantro, and salt.
Stick all the chopped stuff into a jar and add in the juice of the lemon. Roughly chop the cilantro and add that on in with a sprinkle of salt.
Mix it up….And thats it. Now eat… with something or without.
A spoon out of the jar is one of my favorite ways to go at it.
Happy Cinco de Mayo, Happy Tuesday!
Pico de Gallo… Freshy Salsa
- 4-5 Roma Tomatoes
- 1 small red onion
- 1-2 jalapeños (Depending on heat preference)
- 1 lemon or lime
- 1 bunch of cilantro (don't use it if you don't like it)
Chop tomatoes and onion and toss into a bowl or jar. Cut seeds from jalapeño(s) and dice up into little bitty pieces and add that to the tomato and onion. Roughly chop the cilantro and toss that in as well with the juice of the lemon or lime. Sprinkle with salt. Stir, let sit for a minutes, taste and then add more salt if needed.
Eat right away or make ahead and store in the fridge until ready to use.
Goes great with corn chips, tacos, toss onto salads or eat as is standing in front of the fridge. If someone is judging you, they are stupid.
