Pico de Gallo (Fresh Salsa)

Literally translated, Pico de Gallo means "The rooster's bite"  Also called Salsa Fresca, this fresh, uncooked salsa is beautiful on tacos and burritos.  It's also fabulous to scoop up with taco chips!

4 tomatoes, seeded, finely chopped

1 Jalapeno, seeded, finely chopped

1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped

1-2 cloves garlic minced

2 limes juiced

1/2 - 1 cup cilantro finely chopped

Mix all ingredients in a big bowl.  Let the pico sit for a minimum of 15 minutes to let the flavours meld.  I always find that like chilli or soup,  pico tastes best the second day, when, as my friend Scott says, "the ingredients have had time to make love over night".
