Heirloom Tomato Salsa (Pico de Gallo)


This is the season of incredible tomatoes, so enjoy them, not only for their flavor, but their beauty as well. Collect tomatoes of different colors, yellow ones, the green and the red, then dice them up small and you will have, not only the tastiest, but also the most beautiful salsa on the block.

You need

1/2 small jalapeño chile seeded and de-veined, minced (optional)
2 tablespoons minced red onion
1-2 small garlic cloves minced
A small handful fresh cilantro leaves (about 2 tablespoons) chopped
1 lb. ripe heirloom tomatoes, diced
1/2 teaspoon salt
A dash of Worcestershire (optional)
The juice of one lime

To make about 2 cups

Mix the onions with the lime and salt, let them become friends for a moment, then throw in the remaining ingredients. Taste for seasonings.
