Pico de Gallo (or A Party for Your Mouth)

This is another one of those recipes that I make frequently and keep on hand because it tastes so darn good on just about everything. Just between you and I, I like it so much that sometimes I just put it in a bowl and eat it like ice cream. 

Cast of Characters: 
6 medium tomatoes
1 medium white onion
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
1/4 c. lime juice
1or 2 fresh jalapeno peppers
1 clove garlic

Dice tomatoes and onion. Finely chop cilantro. Seed and mince peppers. Peel and dice the garlic, then sprinkle on some salt. Using a large knife blade, mash the garlic & salt into a paste. Put all ingredients (including lime juice) in a bowl & stir well.  Let sit for 15-20 minutes before serving so flavors have a chance to get to know each other.
