A Healthy Mexican Salsa Recipe :
I’m going to show you how to make pico de gallo from scratch. For the best flavor, use homegrown tomatoes! Who cares if they have more liquid. It’s worth it for the flavor! Way better than using Roma tomatoes.
I show you in the video how to take care of the extra tomato juice. Remember, salsa is a very customizable appetizer. You can add all kinds of vegetables to salsa, even walnuts or pecans for crunch.
Other veggies that are good to use: bell peppers of all colors, cucumbers (deseeded), jicama, green or red onions, shredded carrots, minced garlic and on and on.
1/2 medium yellow onion
1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded, minced
handful of chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 lime, juiced
salt and pepper to taste
Chop the tomato into bite-size chunks and place in a strainer to drain while you cut up everything else.
Finely chop your onion and jalapeno. Add to the tomatoes. Chop the cilantro and add to the mix. Squeeze 1/2 lime into the mixture add salt and pepper to taste. Stir well and let sit for 30 minutes before serving.
