Pico de gallo is the perfect example. Fresh, minimalist ingredients and oh so versatile. Does it go on grilled meats? What about in an omelette? Can I put it on salad? How about mindlessly consuming with the best tortilla chips that ever existed? You're in luck sister...Pico does it all! A wonder condiment indeed!! But wait... all of this comes for just a few calories.
A note on store-bought salsa... it's really not that good. Once you've tasted the fresh stuff, there's no turning back. Promise.
Five simple ingredients make this shine. Tomatoes, jalapeno, red onion, lime juice and cilantro. Add a bit of S&P to bring it all together.
If you're making for a big group or party... roughly chop everything and then pulse shortly in your food processor. Will certainly be a different texture, but delicious nonetheless.
