Pico de GalloHere is a tasty recipe for classic Pico de Gallo that is simple and fresh.  Now you can make it at home and eat it with your tacos, fajitas, or just with crispy corn chips. I used the cilantro I’m growing in my herb garden out back for some great fresh flavor.  It’s also a great way to use the tomatoes and onions from your garden that are just starting to get ripe. So let’s get started.  

Chop up your three tomatoes, one onion, and two sprigs of cilantro until they are finely chopped.

Cut the jalapeño stem off, then cut the pepper in half, and remove the seeds along with the white membrane. These are the hottest parts of the pepper.Pico de Gallo 2Then chop the jalapeño into fine pieces.
