    This has been a long time coming. This always gets rave reviews from anyone that eats it. My wife hails from Cuernavaca Morelos and this is the pico from down there.


    9 medium tomatoes
    3 to 4 juice from lemons
    2 bundles cilantro
    2 to 3 jalapenos (more if you like it hot)
    1 onion
    salt to taste

    1. cut and cube up all ingredients except salt and lemon of course

    2. run all through food processor (rough chop if you like)

    3. combine in bowl and add lemon juice and salt to taste. You will not be disappointed with this.


    tomatoes through


    cabbage before and after



    jalaps and cilantro



    ready to mix with lemon and salt


    finished

    Now thats some good looking salsa or pico de gallo that your wife made. That has to be the first one I have ever seen with cabbage in it.[​IMG]

    Dang GOT that pico looks and sounds awsome. I will definately give it a try. Can it be cut in half and still come out ok?. The company I work for has a facility in Cuernavaca. I narrowly missed a trip down there just this past week. I have a feeling my luck is going to run out the next trip though. Oh well from the pics my co-workers have brought back there appears to be some beautiful countryside and neat old architecture in town.

    Yes you can cut in down to what ever you need. just be careful with the lemon juice. do a little first then add latter. Cuernavaca is suppose to be perfect weather all the time with lush forests around...very tropical. I am wanting to go down there in the next 2 or 3 years. Her dad has a house down there we can stay at, plus her grandma and family. I really want to see all the history and old buildings as well.

    never traveled to central and southern parts and i too want to see all of this. i hear they have turned the old haciendas into killer resorts that keep the old charm.

    Personally I'd call that a relish, or a salsa. I think pico should to be chunkier and not as juicy... Bein' from Texas thats the way I grew up on it...JMO. But hey, if the Mexicans call that Pico, then so be it! I'd say they ARE the subject matter experts in that category...
