When I was a kid, I hated tomatoes...with a passion. My mom would always shake her head saying, "Ketchup is your favorite food group, how do you hate tomatoes!" It's the texture I hated, and the taste and how everyone said they were healthy. If I found a tomato on my burger, the burger was beyond saving and offered up to whoever wanted it. It all changed one day… when I had an amazing pico de gallo. I hope you enjoy what I think is a pretty close recipe to the one I had that day. Of course, this recipe includes brain healthy tomatoes and grape seed oil.
- 4 ripe tomatoes
- 1/2 of a small onion
- 1/2 of a jalapeno
- 1 tablespoon cilantro
- Juice of 1/2 Lime
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1 tablespoon grape seed oil
To start, cut your tomatoes into 4 quarters, and then remove the center portion and the pulp. Take the tomatoes and dice them into small pieces.
Also dice up the onion to equally sized pieces.
Take the jalapenos and mince so you even spreading out the heat.
For the cilantro, chop it super fine, so again, you get a little bit in each bite.
Add all 4 ingredients to a bowl.
Now add in the grape seed oil, lime juice and salt. Then stir to combine. That's it! I hope you enjoy.
