Homemade Pico de Gallo Salsa

This is healthy, fresh, and delicious! It's also a great way to use up a surplus of tomatoes if you garden. I'll write down how much of each ingredient I used as a rough guideline, but it is a fun recipe to adapt to your own tastes! All the chopping takes a bit of time but it is so good! This makes a pretty big bowl but it's easy to adjust to any proportion.

What you'll need:
ripe tomatoes (4)
bell pepper (1/2)
jalepeno pepper (1)
red onion (1/4)
garlic cloves (3)
cilantro (about 1/4 of a bunch)
lime juice (3 T. maybe?) I only had 1 hard lime so had to add some from a bottle.
salt to taste

What to do:
Chop all vegetables. Squeeze extra juice and seeds out of tomatoes (into trash) so it doesn't get too watery. Take out seeds and ribs from jalepeno. Pull off bigger stems of cilantro, but don't stress about it too much. Put all ingredients into a bowl and taste. (The tasting is really important!) Then add whatever you think it needs more of! That's it!

0 WW points! (until you use chips to scoop it up...)
