Pico De Gallo (Fresh Salsa)

This is a very healthy tomato based sauce. It is also very versatile - you can eat it as a dip for chips, add to soups, serve over chicken or meat dishes. I thought it was going to be a lot harder to eat healthy but I have discovered many new and delicious recipes. I am going to use the Pico de Gallo as the 'sauce' over some chicken enchiladas, if it comes out good I will post later this week.

2 large tomatoes, seeded and finely diced
1/2 cup red onion, finely diced
1 TBSP jalapeño, finely chopped
juice of 1 lime
1/3 cup cilantro, finely chopped
1/4 cup water
salt & pepper to taste

1. Mix everything in a bowl
2. Cover and let sit in the refrigerator at least 1 hour

Makes 2 cups
