A couple of sprigs of coriander minced (including stems)
Juice of 1 lime (or to taste)
1/4 - 1/2 tsp salt (or to taste)
Pico de Gallo
Makes 1.5 cups.
less than 30 minutes
Pico de Gallo, also known as Salsa Mexicana, is used as a table condiment to sprinkle on tacos, soup or beans or as a dip. The idea is to cut all the ingredients to roughly the same small dice and to have a balance of colour, green (chilli and coriander), white (onion) and red (tomato), just like the Mexican flag.
Core and de-seed the tomatoes, then with a sharp knife cut into a small dice. Peel the onion and dice about half of it into similar size pieces as the tomato, rinse under cold water in a sieve until the water runs clear, this will take the sting out of the beast.
Choose your chilli, chop likewise along with the minced coriander. Place all into a bowl with the lime and salt. Stir and re-adjust seasoning.
Let sit for 20 mins to flavour up, but then use as soon as possible, as if left too long (more than a couple of hours) will lose it's texture and be past it's best.
