Salsa

My family loves salsa. And I actually like for my children to eat salsa, because it feels like a really sneaky way to get them to eat vegetables without noticing or complaining.

I like to make my own salsas so I know exactly what is going into them. Plus, I think they just taste the best when they are made fresh!

Pico de Gallo

Five or six months ago I started working a Pico de Gallo recipe. Honestly, it’s a pretty straight forward salsa to make, and you can’t really mess it up.

Many times I would just throw the ingredients all together, without measuring, and it would be delicious. That’s part of the reason it’s taken me so long to post this recipe – I had to make it a couple times and actually measure the ingredients and write down my baseline ratios.

Tomatoes

Roma tomatoes work best for this recipe as they have less juice than many other varieties.

It is important that you remove the seeds and juice that are inside the tomato before chopping. If you skip this step, your pico will likely be too runny.

Lime Flavor

I made this Pico de Gallo so that you can taste the lime! I used the zest and juice of 1.5 limes.

If you don’t want as much lime flavor, skip the zest, or even keep out 1/3 to 1/2 of the juice, but I promise it’s super tasty and goes well with Hint of Lime Tostito Chips!

Spice Level

The spice level is largely determined by the jalapeno(s). If you want it spicy, leave some seeds in or even add an extra jalapeno.

If you want your pico to be mild, do not use any seeds and rinse the jalapenos (internally) before finely chopping.
