My Great Taste for the Week is up!
Pico de Gallo! One of the best tasting add-on's when you order anything Mexican!
I love Pico de Gallo and I always have to ask for extra!

Ingredients:
3 Large Diced Tomatoes
1/2 Onion Diced
1 Lemon with all the juice squeezed out
1 tsp. Salt
1 Bunch of Cilantro
1 Clove Garlic, minced
1 Jalapeno (Optional)
Avocado (Optional)
Cucumber (Optional)

Directions: 

1. Wash tomatoes and cilantro.
2. Dice tomatoes, onions, chop cilantro, and the optional ingredients (jalapeno, avocado, cucumber)
3. Put ingredients in a bowl.
4. Add salt, garlic, the juice of half a lemon. Mix it up and serve.

*Note: You can roast your tomatoes for great flavor.
heat up a frying pan or skillet on medium high. Place whole tomatoes in the cookware and toast the outside of it until the skin begins to break and split apart. remove from heat and continue with step two.

Also, if you prefer smooth salsa as opposed to chunky just put all this good stuff in the blender.
