I’ve never been the biggest fan of Pico De Gallo but a few weeks ago my sister in law brought it over for a BBQ we were having. I refused to eat it, saying I don’t like it, while everyone around me was shoveling it in because they all loved it.
So later that night after everyone was gone and I was sitting around looking for something to snack on, I decided to give it a try and it was amazing! I couldn’t stop eating it and I understood why no one else could stop earlier that evening.
After asking for the recipe and not getting it, (I think she doesn’t want to share it 😉 ) I finally decided to make my own.
- 6 “on the vine” tomatoes- firm. I took all of the seeds out of the tomatoes.
- 3/4 of a medium red onion
- 1/2 of a medium onion
- half of a bunch of cilantro, cutting the long part of the stem off
- 2 jalapenos (I took the seeds out)
- 1 serrano pepper with seeds out
- 1/4 of a red cabbage
- juice from 1 lime
Just chop everything and mix it together, salting to taste. Refrigerate before serving.
It didn’t taste any different than the one we had before- It was delicious! I was pretty proud of myself. The biggest part of this is chopping everything. It probably took about 1 1/2 hours to chop everything- Maybe I’m just slow? But it was totally worth the wait!
