    1. 1
      Peel and mince the garlic; Combine with olive oil in a small skillet and sauté over low heat until it just starts to turn color – don’t let it brown; For a sharper taste, garlic can be left raw, and olive oil left out (great if you love garlic).
    2. 2
      Wash and dice the tomatoes and place in a large bowl (one that can hold 1-1/2 gallons of salsa); Wash the cilantro, and cut 3/4 of the length of the stems from the bundle.
    3. 3
      Wash the peppers, and remove the stems; Chop the onion, peppers (with seeds and veins), and cilantro and add to the bowl.
    4. 4
      NOTE: The previous step will make a chunky salsa, or “Pico de Gallo,” and is the recipe I usually make (and most people prefer it); If you want a more traditional salsa texture, or just want to save a lot of time, use a food processor to finely chop everything except the canned tomatoes.
    5. 5
      Strain the canned tomatoes to remove most of the water; If you don’t have “petite diced” canned tomatoes, then dice these; Add them to the bowl.
    6. 6
      Add the sautéed garlic to the bowl.
    7. 7
      Slice the lime in half and squeeze the juice from both halves into the bowl.
    8. 8
      Add the vinegar.
    9. 9
      Add 1 Tbsp of the salt, and reserve the other.
    10. 10
      Mix well with wooden spoons and salt to taste (test by dipping with tortilla chips); The canned tomatoes contain salt and the Roma Tomatoes vary in sweetness, so this may cause variation in the right amount of salt.

      This makes a TON of pico, we made 1/3 of it and it was perfect for a few nights of various mexican food we had planned. This came together easily and was delish and fresh!
