Salsa Fresca (Pico de Gallo)

This is great with chips or as a side to grilled fish or cheese-stuffed chilis.

Servings: 8

20 small juliet or 10 roma tomatoes
3-5 jalapeno chilis
1/2 red onion
1 lime, juiced
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
Salt & Pepper, to taste

  • Cut the tomatoes in half lengthwise, squeeze out some of the juice and seeds if you want, and lay them skin side up in a single layer in the Big Mouth Chopper (with the small dice disk). Thwack!  Repeat until you have diced all the tomatoes.
  • Cut the chilis in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds and ribs.  (I use disposal surgical rubber gloves that I buy by the box at Costco to do this--it saves you from the forgot-to-wash-my-hands-and-just-scratched-my-eye pain and drama!).  Lay the chilis skin side up in a single layer in the Big Mouth Chopper and (you got it) Thwack!
  • Cut the onion into pices that will fit in the chopper with the layers of the onion parallel to the surface of the chopper, and (all together now) Thwack!
  • Mix all of this with the remaining ingredients, get your chips, and ENJOY!
