Homemade pico de gaio

pico_done-close_ps Pico de gaio has to be one of the most simple yet delicious culinary creations. I love making it fresh because the tomato and onion mixed with the acidity of the lime and the kick of cilantro and salt is so fresh and inviting, I can’t stop eating it once I start. It’s a problem. But not really… pico_tomato_ps

pico_limes_ps I try to get my produce from local farmers markets, as they always have more flavor. These tomatoes were so ripe and delicious, they really enhanced the whole thing. And the onions had a nice gentle sweet flavor, while still having that onion kick. pico_bowl_ps

Pico de Gaio
2 large ripe tomatoes
1 medium onion
1 bunch cilantro
1/2 lime

Chop tomatoes and onion in small cubes. Dice cilantro, and mix everything together in a bowl. Squeeze lime to taste, I do about 1/2 to 3/4 of a lime. Salt to taste. Stir well and serve chilled.
