3 ripe roma tomatoes
1/4 white or red onion
1 jalapeno pepper
Handful of cilantro
Juice of one lime

Pico de Gallo tastes best freshly made … so we would recommend making it as needed! If it’s left to sit for too long the onion becomes very strong and the tomatoes get soggy. It only takes 10 minutes to make, so enjoy it fresh!
Optional steps (prior to mixing Pico de Gallo): 1). Soak chopped onion in cold water for 10 minutes to reduce sharpness, 2). Drain chopped tomatoes in a strainer for about 1 hour to reduce liquid.
