fresh pico, a summertime favorite.

I’m not sure what it is about the summer that I just crave fresh veggies and fruits from the garden. I could live off of it and be perfectly happy. Last weekend we ventured to the farmers market to stock our fridge full of home grown goodness. In addition to our typical squash, zucchini, and watermelon, I also grabbed ingredients for one of my all-time favorite summertime snacks, pico de gallo. Its so easy to make, and on a hot summer afternoon, it makes a nice light snack with lots of flavor.

 

pico

 

Ingredients

3-4 Roma Tomatoes

1/2 Small white onion

3 Jalapenos

1 small handful of cilantro (approx 1/2 cup chopped)

Salt, pepper, a dash of sugar, and lime juice to taste.

 

I don’t measure anything- it’s all by taste and eyeballing what looks right.  Be sure to de-seed the jalapenos or your mouth will be on fire! The sugar cuts the acidity, but doesn’t make it sweet. You simply chop up all the ingredients, mix, and enjoy!
