I remember once going to a party, and someone had brought some Pico de Gallo salsa. Everyone loved it. It was gone so fast – like speed of light fast. From then on out, I decided it was going to be what I took to parties. Sure, you pick up some of the jarred stuff and be super lazy, but then you can’t take credit for it. And who doesn’t want to be know as the go-to party hero? However, if you take a few minutes to make it, you’ve got bragging rights to last you ‘til the next party – as well as salsa selfie rights.
Pico de Gallo salsa literally means beak of rooster. The best part about this salsa is that it’s incredibly easy to make. It only takes a few ingredients. Chop everything on your cutting board. Add Lime juice and done! No lime is a crime in my kitchen. Don’t confuse this with lemon. Mexican food is all about the lime. At my grocery store in Mexico, yellow lemons are totally M.I.A. – nowhere to be found.
Here’s another must in my kitchen. The beloved jalapeño. You see the seeds and white stuff, right? If you don’t like it muy caliente, use your knife and take those out. If you like it hot, hot, hot, then by all means, keep it in. I like to dice my jalapeño into itty, bitty pieces, but that’s just me. The same goes for the onion and the garlic. Tiny dicing when you’re slicing. Or use a cooking chopper to help make this task go faster.
Pico de Gallo goes on everything. Well, maybe not corn flakes or chocolate cake, but you get my point. My favorite is on molletes, or open-faced Mexican sandwiches. The bread soaks up some of the juice, and HELLO DELICIOUS! Breakfast tacos or just with chips, this salsa is a winner – even for chicken dinner.
