Pico de Gallo or Salsa Fresca is an easy fresh recipe that is perfect for any occasion, especially the Super Bowl! Enjoy on it’s own, as a topping, or with your favorite tortilla chips.
- 1 Garlic Clove, peeled
- 1 Jalapeño Chile Pepper, stemmed and halved
- 2 Medium Large Tomatoes, quartered
- 1/3 Cup Fresh Cilantro or Parsley, roughly chopped
- 1 Large Onion, quartered
- 1 Tablespoon Fresh Lime Juice (or vinegar)
- 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
Drop the garlic and chile pieces one at a time into a running food processor, letting each get finely chopped before adding the next. Add half of the onion and finely chop in the processor. Turn off the processor and remove the lid.
Cut one tomato in quarters and add it to food processor, along with the cilantro or parsley. Pulse 4 to 6 times until you have a coarse mixture. Scrape the mixture into a bowl.
Dice the remaining tomato and onion into 1/4" pieces and add to the bowl. Taste and season with lime juice (or vinegar) and salt. Mix well.
Serve with tortilla chips or tostadas.
Note: This recipe can easily be made without a food processor. Simply finely dice all of the ingredients by hand and mix well.
