I’ve said this before and I will say it again. Food is so naturally beautiful!!
I have been wanting to make pico de gallo ever since I saw Ree Drummond Pioneer Woman make it on her Food Network TV show. It seemed so easy and a staple to her household that I figured I might as well make it a staple here! (Plus our apartment is in supposed study mode for midterms…supposedly.)
The recipe could not be more simple. Equal parts tomato, red onion, cilantro, and one lime and salt.
Chop and dice them all up into pieces.
Place in a bowl and squeeze out all of the lime juice! If you use your palm and roll the lime around flat on a table, it helps you get more juice out of it.
Toss it around and season with salt! And that’s it! If we’re lucky, this will last us…maybe two days? I already know I have to make more after I finish this post.
Pico de Gallo
recipe by Ree Drummond, Food Network
4 firm roma tomatoes, diced
1 red onion, diced
1 bunch cilantro, chopped (how fine or rough you want it chopped is up to you)
salt to season
Place the chopped tomatoes, onion, and cilantro into a bowl. Squeeze out the juice of 1 lime. Toss and season with salt to taste. Enjoy with tortilla chips, with quesadillas, or as a side for chicken, lamb, or steak!
