Every once in a while, my husband comes out with a gem from his childhood. Last weekend, he said he wanted to make this fresh salsa that his mom made when he was growing up. He gave me the ingredients he would need so I could get them at the store - and it sounded like a pico de gallo to me. I was super excited because I love pico de gallo and anything his mom makes is awesome, so I knew it would be good. After the first bite, I told him he was absolutely making this every weekend, from now on. It's absolutely fantastic - and even better the next day!
Pico de Gallo
5 plum tomatoes, diced
1 12-oz can of pickled jalapenos, diced (seed them if you don't want it too spicy)
1 to 1.5 cups fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 of a large red onion, diced fine
1 to 2 avocados
juice of 4 limes
Combine all ingredients except avocado and lime juice in a large bowl and refrigerate at least one hour. Dice avocado(s) and add to the bowl, along with the lime juice. Toss together and let sit for 15 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips.
