Simple, and tasty.

Pico de Gallo

For the Mexican barbecue (ole!) I came up with a number of suitable dishes. This particular one is a staple of Mexican food. Pronounced “pico de gaio”, meaning “Rooster’s Beak”, it’s like a salsa, but less saucy. Spicy and delicious, and really good with white meat, or burgers.

Simple, and tasty.

Ingredients

  • Two ripe plum tomatoes, chopped into small chunks
  • Half a red onion, chopped finely
  • One to two large red chillies or jalapeño chillies, chopped finely
  • Juice and zest of one lime
  • A handful of coriander (cilantro), roughly chopped
  • 1tsp rock salt

Recipe

Combine the ingredients! I’d start with just one chilli before tasting and adding more – it’s meant to be spicy, but if you can’t eat it because it’s too hot, there’s no point. You’ll need to leave this in the fridge for 3-4 hours so the flavours combine. Yum.
