The Ospidillo Cafe Pica De Gallo

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by Bone Man

This is a condiment served on Mexican dishes such as fajitas. The bright blend of flavors is just incredible and, before you know it, you'll be spooning this stuff over non-Mexican dishes such as fried chicken or pork roast. It will keep just fine for 3 or 4 days in the refrigerator. I got this recipe from an old church fundraiser cookbook (Reorganized LDS church in Independence, Missouri) that a beloved aunt sent me several years ago. I have never had better Pica de Gallo anywhere. (pronounced: Peek-uh day guy-O, according to my daughter who speaks some Spanish). I have a Mexican friend who also says it's pretty genuine and the best that he ever had too. This is much less tomato-ey than regular salsa. The time listed includes marinating time in the refrigerator. I hope others will enjoy this excellent Mexican condiment as much as my friends and family do.

Perfect recipe - this is exactly the recipe my brother brought back from Mexico! I have never mixed the water in it though - usually the tomatoes tend to give off enough juice and I have always used salt ground from a salt grinder - the grainy texture tends to be perfect with this.
