Pico de gallo (salsa)

Colin had been holding out on me. Just recently (in the last couple months) he made this amazing pico de gallo and I was so impressed! I made it myself today for the first time and I felt obligated to share the recipe.

I also thought I’d share how affordable this is for nice, fresh salsa. Much better than what you can buy at the grocery store! This recipe makes *almost* 4 cups of pico de gallo, which is a lot!

Ingredients:

4 cloves of garlic (33 cents)
Juice from one lime (25 cents)
1/2 bunch of cilantro ($1.19)
2 poblano peppers (96 cents)
1 jalapeño pepper (16 cents)
3 plum tomatoes ($1.13)
1/2 red onion ($1.15) = $5.17 with enough leftover garlic, cilantro, and red onion for another batch. Plus you could shop somewhere cheaper than Publix (say, Walmart, not that I’m advocating that) and possibly make it even cheaper
Optional: salt and pepper if desired, to taste

Recipe:

1. Finely dice your tomatoes.

2. Cut up your poblano peppers in the same way.

3. Cut up your jalapeño (you can leave the seeds in or take them out.)

5. Chop about half of your red onion.

6. Chop your garlic. Add onion and garlic.

7. Wash, shred, and add your cilantro.

8. Cut and juice your lime over your pico de gallo.

9. Complete!

Now, just enjoy your fresh pico de gallo with some chips, with practically any Mexican dish, or straight from the container. Whatever you want. 🙂
This is one of my favorite ways to eat vegetables.
