Pico de gallo is a fresh salsa that is not canned or cooked. The words translate to rooster beak, pico is also the word for pecked like a chicken pecking you. I guess it's cause the salsa has a bite, or a hot stinging sensation. All I know is that it is mighty tasty.
fresh tomatoes chopped 4 cups drain excess juice
2 limes squeezed
1/2 cup cut chives
1 medium onion chopped finely
5 fresh jalapeno peppers chopped very small
1 sprig of fresh cilantro chopped fine
1 teaspoon salt
Gather all ingredients, chop finely, place in large bowl. Depending on how hot the peppers are your pico de gallo might be very hot to mild. This will fit in a quart jar. It can be frozen also for later use, to get the fresh taste of summer in the winter, and fall months.
