Fresh Tomato Salsa (Pico de Gallo)

Salsa is a go-to recipe when I want something quick and healthy, but also really tasty. It's especially great during the spring and summer months. I only wish I made Bacardi Lemon sorbet to go with it! Yum.

This recipe can easily be doubled.


3 large or 4 medium Roma (Plum) tomatoes, diced
2 tsp. fresh, raw jalapeƱo, finely chopped
1/2 White or Red Onion, diced
1 large Or 2 small Cloves Garlic, finely chopped
2 tsp. fresh cilantro, minced (Or Parsley) (I use a mix of parsley and salt-free garlic and herb seasoning)
Squeeze from 1/2 lime
3-4 tablespoon whole kernel corn (Optional)
3-4 tablespoon red or black beans, fresh or low sodium canned (Optional)
Half teaspoon sea salt or kosher salt (salt to taste)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper (pepper to taste)
Squeeze from 1/2 lime

*I'm one of those people for whom cilantro tastes like soap.
In place of cilantro I use 1 teaspoon of salt-free garlic and herb seasoning


Mix all these ingredients in a bowl and let refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
