Pico de Gillo

Pico de Gallo:
- 6 Roma Tomatoes (buy 12 incase your onion is strong)
- 1 Red Onion
- 1 Bunch of Cilantro
- 2 Limes
- 1.5 Tbsp of Salt  (I have used half this amount and it is still good)
- 1 JalapeƱo (optional)

Dice the tomatoes and red onion into small cubes (make sure to cut the red onion small to minimize its spicy characteristics!). Rinse your cilantro then finely mince just the leaves. If you want to heat things up, add a jalapeno. Combine all the ingredients into a bowl. Squeeze 2 limes on top and stir in  the salt. Mix well and refrigerate salsa.
Enjoy with chips or atop your favorite taco!
