Pico de Gallo


Pico de Gallo means beak of rooster. If someone can explain what that has to do with anything, I'd be very interested to hear. Anyway, this is a simple recipe that will make your whole kitchen smell fresh. That's just the best way to describe it. And as a bonus, you get all the phytochemical colors in at once!


Pico de Gallo

2 C chopped tomatoes

2 bell peppers

1/4 chopped cilantro

1 clove garlic

3 green (spring) onions

pinch salt

2 limes

1/4 cup red cabbage

  1. Chop all vegetables into small pieces (don't worry about making them even, though)

  2. Finely chop garlic and cilantro (including the stems)

  3. Dump all chopped ingredients into a bowl

  4. Zest one lime into bowl and juice both limes onto the vegetables

  5. Add a pinch of salt

  6. Use your hand to mix everything together, squishing it a little as you go so the juices come out

  7. Taste, adding lime juice or salt as needed
