Pico de Gallo

Pico de Gallo
Classic fresh salsa chunky and as spicy as you wish, the mexican table would not be the same without it. Essential to tacos I also like to sprinkle it over may an entree to add sparkle to a dish. The finer you chop everything the more taste sensations you will get in every bite. The olive oil is an untraditional touch but I think it adds a special touch to the tomatoes.
1 cup tomato diced
1/4 cup diced onion
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 jalapenos seeded and diced
1/4 salt
1/4 tsp sugar
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp lime juice

mix everything together, the sooner you you eat it the better.

Tomatillo salsa Fresca
A bright salsa where you poach the tomatillos slightly then shock them cold to maintain their bright  flavor.

10 tomatillos
4 serrano chiles
1 tsp salt
1 cup diced onion
1 cup chopped cilantro
1 cup water

bring some water to a boil in a large stock pot cook the tomatillos for one minute, strain and cool in an ice bath transfer cooled tomatillos to a blender  with the water and puree mix with other ingredients and you are done.

Good with chips, steak or anything really. We serve it atop the carnitas for its acidity.
