Since today is Cinco de Mayo, I thought I would try out a Mexican-inspired dish and make my own pico de gallo. It was surprisingly so simple, I can’t believe I haven’t tried this before.
First, gather the following ingredients: 6 roma tomatoes, 1/2 small red onion, fresh cilantro, 1/2 lime, 1/2 jalapeno, garlic, garlic powder, cumin, salt, and pepper:
Dice the tomatoes and place in a bowl:
Add minced onion, 3 tablespoons cilantro, and 1/2 jalapeno to the tomatoes:
Squeeze in the juice of the lime:
Next, add the garlic, garlic powder, cumin, salt, pepper and mix:
Cover, refrigerate for 3 hours, and enjoy!
I think this recipe is a little strong on the cilantro, at least for using it as a plain salsa. I think I will be using this for my Qdoba-inspired burritos next time to give them a little more kick. All in all, though, I am satisfied with this recipe.
