This is great and simple as a dip with chips, or use it to top grilled chicken or meat. The fresh flavors are tangy and have a bit of heat that complements grilling so well.

Want to impress your friends with a super easy, tongue-tantalizing appetizer?
Just make homemade pico de gallo. Pico de Gallo is that delicious tangy raw salsa type of dip that you serve with tortilla chips. It’s a CINCH to make and SO MUCH BETTER than what you can buy in a super market.
- 1 bunch cilantro
- 1 white onion
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 jalapeno (if you don't like things spicy, take this down to ½ a jalapeno)
- ½ pound fresh tomatoes
- salt / pepper to taste
- Rough chop all ingredients and throw into a Cuisinart. Pulse a few times until chunky ...don't go too far or you'll get a runnier consistency.
- Throw in a good amount of salt and just a little pepper. Stir to combine.
- Let sit for about 30 minutes before serving.
