Pico de Gallo

 

Pico de gallo also known as salsa Fresca is a fresh salsa made with tomatoes, onion, cilantro, jalapeños, salt, and fresh lime juice. It is so simple and so good! It may be my new favorite food.  It's the perfect topping for bean burgers, salads, burrito bowls, or use for dipping tortilla chips.

I've acquired a taste for jalapeños in the last few years since my father grows them and gives them to me by the basketful. I've had no choice but to embrace them. They have just the right amount of hotness to give food a nice spicy kick. I've been throwing them in everything from green juice to bean burgers. They are the perfect pepper for pico de gallo. Once you try it, you may never go back to that jarred salsa again.

Try it today!
