Pico de Gallo

Pico de Gallo

Today we are preparing an incredibly easy Latin American recipe. Pico de Gallo is great and super fresh that may serve well as an appetizer or accompaniment to your meals. Using the coriander and lime juice gives it a very special taste. We decided to use bell peppers too, though we have tasted it before without the bell pepper and apparently, in Mexico they use hot peppers instead. It depends on your preferences.

We have added a few pictures as serving suggestions: appetizer with toasted corn tortillas; quesadillas with fried beans and guacamole; and nachos.

Ingredients

4 big plump tomatoes

1/2 medium onion

1/2 red bell pepper

small bunch of coriander

1 lime

salt to taste

Serves: 8

Directions

Dice the tomatoes and onion and place in a bowl. Remove the roots of the coriander and chop (you may eat stems and leaves). Add the lime juice and salt to taste. Mix well. It may be served immediately or if you wish, you could let it chill it in the fridge.
