I wanted the salsa to be chunky and so I cut the tomatoes a little bigger. Some people might say that this is more like Pico de Gallo. Both have basically the same ingredients, except that salsa has more liquid than Pico de Gallo. Salsa is what I set out to make..but I understand if you want to call it Pico de Gallo.
1 1/2 Pounds tomatoes, cut into 1/2 inch dice
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 large jalapeno chile, stemmed, seeded and minced
1 small garlic clove, minced
2-6 tsp lime juice (2 limes)
1/2 tsp salt
pinch of pepper
sugar to taste
Set a colander inside a bowl and drain the tomatoes for about 20 minutes. As the tomatoes drain layer onion, cilantro, jalapeno and garlic on top. Shake colander to drain off excess tomato juice. Discard juice.
Transfer tomato mixture to bowl and add lime juice, salt and pepper and toss to combine. Add sugar to taste and additional lime juice to taste before serving.
