This is an ok pico de gallo recipe. I really missed the garlic in this recipe, so added a small clove. As the other reviewer mentioned, fresh tomatoes are essential. I also soak my onions in ice water before mixing them in with the tomatoes to take away some of the bite that raw onions can have. The ice water makes the onions sweeter. For a twist, I add a dash of chili powder and cumin.
I fixed this for a latin american buffet this weekend and this was gobbled up in no time. People loved it and commented about it a number of times. Garden fresh tomatoes were the key. I'll have to admit I missed the garlic. I may try adding some the next time.
