PICO DE GALLO (FRESH TOMATO SALSA)
Enjoy this with our braised pork belly tostado tower!
3-4 ripe tomatoes, seeded and diced; or 1 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered
1/2 red onion, small dice or 1-2 whole green onions
1 small jalapeño, seeded and diced or other pepper variety
4 cloves garlic, pasted
Juice from 1-2 limes
1/2 bunch cilantro leaves, no stems*, torn
Salt, pepper, coriander to taste
Blend all ingredients together. Season lightly with salt pepper coriander. Garnish with more cilantro, if desired.
*Chef’s note: The leaves of the cilantro plant are very strong and soapy to some people. We do not use the stems; only the leaves, and most people who are sensitive to cilantro, like it better.
