One of my favorite uses for tomatoes is in fresh pico de gallo. It's great with chips, tacos, or as a magnificent accompaniment to rice and beans. Here is how I make mine:
* 2 large tomatoes, chopped
* 1-2 stalks green onion, chopped, or sub any other kind of onion
* juice from 1/2 lime
* 1 jalapeno, diced
* lots of cilantro ( but we love cilantro. a lot.)
* salt and pepper to taste
Mix everything together and enjoy. Having tomatoes on hand and not buying pre-made salsas has helped with this month's goal of reducing my plastic consumption. Fresh pico tastes amazing and only takes a few minutes to whip up.
Are you enjoying tomatoes from your garden? What are your favorite ways to use them?
