Cabbage Pico De Gallo (Salsa Fresca)

I like to add finely shredded cabbage to mine, and to do that you will need a food processor.

However you can omit the cabbage for a more traditional Mexican Pico De Gallo if you prefer. 

That recipe is listed below and is also on this blog, however this is my favorite version and really goes a long way and feeds more people when paired with other Mexican dishes.

This is the best Salsa in the WORLD!!

When making this simple salsa, make sure to drain most of the liquid out of your tomatoes otherwise it will become mushy to fast. I recommend using Roma tomatoes, that way there is not to much liquid.
