This past weekend Gary and Maude stopped by the house, and Judy made her Pico de Gallo, (or should that be Gallow), and Guacamole. It's incredible stuff. I can't eat Pico de Gallo without thinking of the song that our children used to listen to when we were kids. It was by "Trout Fishing in America", which I think is one of the funniest children bands.
Judy's Pico de Gallow
2 cups tomatoes cut into 3/8 inch pieces
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1/2 cup white onions, also diced
1 1/2 tablespoons miniced jalapeno. She uses rubber gloves when she cuts these. Take out the seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice.
Believe it or not, she doesn't have a recipe for this. She just combines various amounts of avacodos, garlic, lime juice, tomatoes, cilantro, and salt to taste. She does it the best.
