Home Grown Pico de Gallo

So, what do I do with that fresh organic produce from the Organic Bed?  Make Pico de Gallo, Salsa, Pickled Jalapenos, and I dehydrate the Cayenne Chile for use as a spice.  This particular Pico de Gallo is made with one very ripe Tomato, a green Jalapeno, and a small white Onion.
You have to grow year around to have a Salsa Garden in Texas.  The Onions are a cool weather plant which I grow in the winter time.  In May is usually when the Onions will flower, and need to be picked, otherwise the tops will turn brown, and the Onion will go into hibernation over the hot Summer months.  The Tomatoes and Chiles like the other side of the year, the Summer and Fall are when they do best.
