Make this 15-minute Pico de Gallo Salsa, grab some chips, and have a party anytime.
Pico de Gallo Salsa
Hi. It's Lois in the kitchen at Recipe Idea Shop. This Pico de Gallo Salsa is very easy and amazingly tasty. Even if you are mighty slow at chopping onions and tomatoes (like I am), it shouldn't take you longer than 15 minutes to make it. Start with fresh, ripe tomatoes from the Farmer's Market or your own garden for best results! When I can't get fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes, I buy grape or cherry tomatoes at the grocery store. I find that they seem to have a better flavor out of season than larger ones.
Check out my cookbook and food journal on Amazon.
Try Pico de Gallo Salsa with Mexican Layered Dip, burritos or casseroles. It is excellent served simply with taco chips. I love it on top of Lentil Soup, Black Bean Soup and Middle Eastern Black Bean Ful. Try it with Black Bean Tortilla Chips Casserole.
WHAT YOU NEED
You will need a knife, cutting board, bowl and measuring spoons. I also use a garlic mincer because it's so easy to mince garlic with it. Or, choose a good food processor for salsa.
