The other day it was subzero, windy, and snowing, and the spring fever (or summer fever?) hit and I had a grand ol’ hankering for tomatoes and cilantro. (I would say craving, but as any woman of child-bearing age will tell you, do not use words like “craving,” “emotional,” or “sick” unless you want to be met with raised eyebrows and suggestive glances. I’m not pregnant, so I had a hankering, not a craving, thank you very much.)
Since my garden plot is still frozen solid and lying under a sheet of ice, I opted for purchasing tomatoes and cilantro instead of waiting for my homegrown veggies to be ready.
Here is a fresh, easy recipe for Pico de Gallo that comes together in 2 minutes! (Dislaimer: This is a recipe for fresh salsa, not rooster’s beak as the name implies.)
Gather your ingredients – tomatoes (a meaty variety is best, like roma or beefsteak), onion, garlic, cilantro, lime, salt, and pepper.
