Pico de Gallo

Pico de Gallo

This recipe for Pico de Gallo uses fresh ingredients that are being harvested at Colchester Neighborhood Farm. While Pico de Gallo is very similar to salsa, the biggest difference between these two dishes is that salsa recipes can vary, using a variety of fruits and vegetables, some that are fresh and some that are cooked. Pico de Gallo uses only fresh, uncooked ingredients and the ingredients are always the same. Serve this up along with tortilla chips and some Margaritas this weekend.

 

Pico de Gallo

1 Onion, finely chopped

1 lb Tomatoes, seeded and finely chopped

1 Green Pepper, seeded and finely chopped

2 or 3 Jalapeño Peppers, seeded and finely chopped

½ cup Fresh Cilantro, chopped

Juice of one Lime

Salt & Pepper to taste

 

Combine all ingredients and serve with tortilla chips or alternative. Use in wraps or in a salad with greens and avocado.
