Tomato Salsa/pico de gallo

There are tons of salsa recipies online. I only add this one because I discovered that organic onions don’t need to be rinsed of their pungency like regular onions do. If using regular onions/garlic, pour boiling water over them and soak for 5 minutes. Drain water and they are ready to use. I was amazed at the difference the organic onions made. No bad/strong after taste. I highly recommend them for salsas/chutneys. I’m not sure, but I don’t think they give off such a strong odor when they cook either… therefore if you’re pregnant and can’t stand smells, you might want to give them a try. It could help.

  • 1 small organic onion
  • 1 clove organic garlic
  • 2 fresh tomatoes
  • 1 lime/lemon fresh
  • salt
  • jalapeño pepper (add to taste)
  • cilantro

Mince onion, garlic, tomatoes, and pepper.  Rince onion/garlic as described above if necessary. Here in Europe I usually use canned/bottled jalapeño.  Juice lime (or lemon) and add to other minced ingredients. Add salt. Mince cilantro and add. For best flavor, refrigerate for a few hours so the flavors gel.
