Pico de Gallo Recipe for Low Carb Eating

This is a Pico de Gallo recipe that i use for alot of meals. Similar to pico recipes from major restaurants... BTW if you want recipes of whats in restaurants, google "copycat recipes" .. didnt say they were low carb though.

 - 3 tomatoes (.39cents a pound with walmart price match)
 - 1 onion (.29 cents a pound with walmart price match)
 - cilantro --- .19 cents
 - 3-4 jalapenos - for this recipe im using jalapenos in a can since it was on markdown.. can use the remainder to make 7-8 more recipes.
- olive oil
- white vinegar
- salt, pepper, garlic powder

1. Chop onions fine, chop tomatoes fine, chop up jalapenos to get about 1/4 cup. chop up cilantro to get about 1/2 cup.
2. Combine all in large bowl.
3. Add 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
4. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon vinegar.
5. Stir.

Tastes best when allowed to set for 6+ hours. i prefer my pico to be onion heavy, add / subtract ingredients to your own preference. i use pico to add to my burgers, taco meat, chicken, etc

takes about 10 min to make. this bowl will last about 2 weeks and i barely spent a dollar.
