This is a required accompaniment with Meredith’s Fish Tacos, but don’t limit its use to that. Any grilled item with a little south-of-the-border flair will welcome this on the side. Try grilling tuna with just salt and pepper, and then spoon some of the pico de gallo over.

Yield: Makes about 2 cups

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 pound ripe tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • ½ cup chopped red onions
  • ¼ cup packed chopped fresh cilantro
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 small cloves garlic, minced
  • 1¼ tablespoons seeded and minced Jalapeño or serrano chiles
  • Kosher salt

Directions

Combine the tomatoes, onions, cilantro, lime juice, garlic, and jalapeño in a medium bowl; toss to blend well. Season to taste with salt. Let stand at least 30 minutes at room temperature for the flavors to develop. This is best eaten fresh.
