Pico de Gallo

I've had a request for some Mexican, which is a great idea for a frugal cooking site.  To be fair, I don't cook true Mexican food, but I love some of the ingredients and combinations.  I love the use of fresh tomatoes and lettuce especially.  My hubby and kids love the cheese and sour cream!

Here's my take on pico de gallo.  It's great in place of salsa, especially if you're watching the sodium.  I even love it on top of a cheese omelette, and it looks lovely!  Adjust the quantities to your family's taste.

Pico de Gallo

2 medium ripe tomatoes, cubed
1/4 medium red onion, diced
1/2 jalapeno, diced, optional
1/2 cup fresh cilantro chopped
1/2 tsp. salt

Mix it all together and adjust seasoning.  Refrigerate fifteen minutes, then enjoy!
