Pico de Gallo with a Twist
How to Make Pico de Gallo with a Twist
- Peel and dice/chop the cucumbers (with or without the seeds, depending on your preference), then dice/chop tomatoes, green onions (including tops), and white onion and combine all in a bowl. Seed and finely mince the jalapenos, including the seeds of at least 1 (add more seeds for more heat) and add to bowl. Wash and finely chop the cilantro and add to bowl.
- Juice the limes and lemons, remove any seeds, and add juice to bowl. Fold in peeled, diced avocados and season with garlic salt to taste. Refrigerate 1-2 hours before serving. Yields 6-8 cups.
- Note: You may use a food processor for some of the chopping. Since I tend to overprocess, I only use it for the cilantro, onion and a couple of the tomatoes (so I get some nice juice). Everything else I chop by hand. You can halve the recipe if you’re making it for a small group. It keeps pretty well in the fridge, almost a week, before the avocados begin to get too soft.
