To say I love Mexican food is an understatement.
The fresh flavors of serrano, chili powder, garlic, onions and lime set my taste buds into overdrive.
One of my FAVs is pico de gallo. I’m about the only person in the household who eats it, so started throwing together ingredients until I found the perfect flavor balance in this small recipe.
I hope summer hurries up. I’m ready for fresh garden tomatoes, onions and cilantro to make this dish again!
The trick to this recipe is using FRESH cilantro. When it goes out of my garden, I get it from my local farmer’s market. (Cilantro goes to seed about every three weeks, so you have to continually plant it to have fresh on hand. The seeds are coriander, so keep them! Coriander is expensive.)
Lime juice can really spice up a recipe. You can adjust the amount of lime juice to suit your taste buds.
You can easily double this recipe to make what you need – but be careful not to go crazy with the lime juice. It can overpower this wonderful side if you use to much.
This can make enough for a few servings, but I tend to eat the whole batch!
