I was on the phone with my daughter recently and promised to get this recipe to her.

Using guacamole as a sandwich topping has been one of the most useful ways for me to get a bunch of veggies in my husband nearly daily.

I make pico de gallo once a week, then daily mix up some fresh guacamole to put in his lunch.

pico de gallo

  • 3 large tomatoes or 5 plum tomatoes
  • 1/2 a yellow bell pepper (for wusses like us) or a whole jalapeno (for the brave)
  • small onion
  • large garlic clove
  • 1/4 cup dried cilantro (for those who like it) or parsley (for those for whom cilantro tastes like soap)
  • 1 TB lime juice
  • unrefined sea salt
  • Finely dice tomatoes, pepper and onion. Place in a medium glass bowl.
  • Press or smash garlic clove into bowl.
  • Stir in cilantro or parsley with a WOODEN SPOON (no metal).
