Pico de Gallo Salsa
Also called salsa mexicana and salsa cruda, this spicy tomato sauce is ubiquitous in Mexican restaurants. Serve it with tortilla chips, quesadillas, omelettes, or anything else that needs a bit of zing.
|Directions||Mix everything in the bowl, taste, and add more hot peppers, cilantro, and/or salt, as needed.
Store in a lightly covered container in the refrigerator.
|Notes||The amounts for some of the ingredients are vague because everyone has a different tolerance for heat and cilantro. Personally, I prefer very mild salsa with little or no cilantro. Experiment to see how you like your salsa.|
