Since summer is winding down (I realize it's fall but I don't want to let go of summer quite yet) I decided to share one of my super simple recipes for salsa (or pico de gallo, whatever you want to call it). Bonus, it's healthy!
We've still got a few tomatoes so I made up a batch last weekend and I'm hoping to make more this weekend. Crossing my fingers for more tomatoes.
Anyhow....gather your ingredients.
Lemon (lemon juice works fine too)
Sea salt (prefer the sea but regular works)
(If you want to get crazy you can add a jalapeno, but I'm not a fan so I leave it out.)
|Dice your onion. I use about a quarter of a medium sized onion.|
|Dice your tomato. Two big or 3-4 small-ish ones.|
|Throw your tomato and onion into a bowl.|
|Dice up your cilantro. About a tablespoon.|
|Add to tomatos and onions.|
|Squeeze lemon juice onto the mixture.|
(Add jalapeno hear if you want.)
|Add about a tsp of garlic powder. |
I use powder instead of salt so we don't get too much sodium.
|Generously add pepper if your husband is a pepper lover like mine. |
Plus a pinch of salt or so (you can always add more later).
|Mix it up.|
|Admire how beautiful and summery it looks.|
Next, put it in the fridge for about an hour so the flavors can mingle.
|Most important step right here....taste it! Does it need anything else? |
Add it in and stir it up.
|Eat with chips or on a taco salad or off the spoon. |
There's really no wrong way to eat this stuff.
(We like to call nachos a taco salad in our house. Sounds healthier!)
That's all there is to it! See, told ya it was easy.
Now hurry and make some before all the tomatoes are gone.
