Pico de Gallo

To quote a commercial for another product.  "I put that SH*^ on everything"
Below is a guestimate of how much of each item I just eye it and taste and add more.  Make it up adjusting for personal taste. 

 3 medium tomatoes diced
1 half red onion diced*
1 jalapeno diced
.5 oz cilantro chiffand
1 clove garlic either pressed diced or grated**
1 large or about 2 small limes juiced
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

In a large bowl combine everything adjust salt and lime to taste.  Your best bet on getting the right amount of salt is to taste with a chip.

 * if you are not a fan of the raw onion flavor as I am not try this dice the onions place in a med bowl fill with water let sit about 5 min drain in strainer put back in bowl add more water soak 5 min more drain add to mixture.

** great Rachel Ray tip slice the top and bottom of clove off peel then grate over bowl with a micro plane I do it every time I need fine garlic to mix into something.
