Pico de Gallo – Supper for a Steal

Here is another recipe I taught the kids of the Junior League Make a Meal cooking demo.

I love pico de gallo, maybe even more than salsa. Big chunks of fresh tomato, mixed with onion, cilantro, lime, and a jalapeno I picked right off of my plant. In addition to jalapenos I have started growing cilantro and tomatoes. Hopefully soon I will have almost all the ingredients needed to whip up a batch of pico at any time.
