Pico de Gallo

I got this recipe from my friend, Emily.  It is delicious and colorful and healthy.  Emily's family likes to eat it with chips as a snack.  It is delicious served with Mexican dishes.  It's shown here with Chicken Enchiladas.  It's the perfect, healthy Mexican side dish.    Thanks, Emily!!

Pico de Gallo
4 tomatoes, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1-3 Jalapeno Peppers, seeded and diced
 Cilantro, chopped (probably about 2-3 Tablespoons)
Fresh Lime Juice- about 2-3 limes
Salt to taste

Mix all of the ingredients and put in the fridge for about an hour.  Serve.

The amounts don't need to be exact and can be according to your taste.

Just in case you're wondering, as I was, what the difference is between Pico de Gallo and Salsa:
Pico de Gallo is like a salad with chopped vegetables and Salsa is a sauce, so it's more, well, saucy.
