Pico De Gallo

Literally translated, Pico de Gallo means "Rooster's Beak". I prefer this kind of chunky chopped mixture as opposed to the more liquid type of salsa.

Pico De Gallo

5 large tomatoes, chopped
4 scallions or 1 medium white onion, chopped
1/2 c. chopped fresh cilantro
1 small can diced green chilies, drained
1 clove garlic, minced
dash of cumin
juice of half a lime
splash of white vinegar
salt to taste

Combine all in a bowl and mix well. Refrigerate at least one hour to allow flavors to develop.

I would not suggest freezing it like this but if you puree it into a salsa then yes it will freeze well. No authentic salsa should be cooked :0)
