I never thought I’d do many recipes on this blog, but I made this the other day and it was AMAZING. Here is a Texas treat that just happens to be vegan and raw. I was a huge hot sauce and salsa fanatic before I even move to Texas, but now I eat it all the time. To sweeten the recipe I threw some pineapple in there because well, I love pineapple and I thought it would go well. I’ve never actually made pico de gallo before but this came out delicious. In fact I didn’t even use chips, just ate it with a spoon. Quick prep time, but you gotta let it sit overnight to soak in its own juices.
- 1/2 of an onion
- 2 tomatoes
- 1 half bunch of cilantro (20 sprigs?), just the leaves
- 1/4 of a pineapple
- Juice of 2 limes
- 1-3 jalapenos depending on how you want it, I used 3 and it was HOT even by my standards.
Dice everything but the limes into salsa-sized pieces and put into a container. Squeeze the limes over it, cover it and let it sit overnight to soak in its own juices. The next day grab some chips, some sliced zucchini or just a spoon and enjoy!
