Azamara Cruises Pico de Gallo Recipe

Pico de Gallo is a food of many names. It may also be known as “salsa fresca”, “salsa picada” or “salsa mexicana”. The red, white and green colors are reminiscent of the Mexican flag, and it’s sometimes called “salsa bandera” (flag sauce) as well.

Ingredients:

  • Three tomatoes
  • Two jalapenos (or more, if you can handle the heat!)
  • One white onion
  • Coriander/cilantro
  • Lime
  • Minced garlic
  • Sea salt
  • Cucumber (optional)
  • Avocado (optional)

Directions:

Dice the tomatoes, onion and jalapenos. Chop about a quarter of a bunch of coriander/cilantro. Dice half a cucumber, if you’re adding it. Dice one avocado, if you’re adding it.

Put all ingredients in a bowl. Add one teaspoon of salt, half a teaspoon of minced garlic, and the juice of half a lime. Mix well and serve immediately.

Alternative: Roast whole tomatoes in a frying pan or skillet on medium-high heat, until the skin begins to split apart.
