PICO DE GALLO

  • SERVES:
  • COOKING TIME:
    15 MINUTES
Pico de Gallo literally means ‘rooster’s beak’. No one really knows why it is called this, however there are a few theories.  Some claim it’s due to picking at the salsa with your two fingers, like a beak. Others claim it’s due to the shape of the Serrano chile resembling a beak, or the sharp pain from a rooster’s beak, similar to the spiciness. A delicious salsa with equal mystery.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 3 tomatoes, diced
  • ½ bunch coriander
  • 1 serrano or ½ jalapeño chile, finely chopped (optional)
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoon salt

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Place the diced onion in a bowl and add the salt, sugar and lime juice. Leave aside for a few minutes and allow the onions to cure.
