What is Pico de Gallo?

Pico de Gallo is a Mexican salad made from fresh chopped tomato, white onion, and green chilis.  In Mexico it is sometimes called ensalada mexicana (Mexican salad). Because the colors of the red tomato, white onion, green chili are reminiscent of the colors of the Mexican flag, it is also sometimes called ensalada bandera (flag sauce).

Here is my variation of Pico de Gallo (मेक्सिकन गोलभेडा को अचार) recipe:

4 Ripe tomatoes, finely chopped

1 Cup chopped cilantro leaf
2-3 Jalapeno peppers, finely chopped
3 tbsp Fresh lime juice
1 tsp minced garlic

Combine all ingredients, cover, and refrigerate for about an hour before serving.
