Ex-Girlfriend's Mom's Salsa Fresca (Pico de Gallo)
I went EXACTLY as the recipe stated, and I never use recipes, but I wanted to dare to be different, especially with all the rave reviews. My salsa came out sooooooo SOUR!!! I have just spent the last 3 hours trying to fix it and ended up turning it into an actual salsa with canned tomatoes and sugar and cumin to try and tame the sourness. It is still uber sour, and I am really upset about it. I'm trying to understand if all the amazing reviewers love the sourness of that much lime juice? I don't get it. And the amount of red onion is crazy! 1/2 a cup would have been plenty and I will forever use a sweet yellow onion from now on, the red onion is way too overpowering. If I am missing something from this recipe and I made a mistake, then please let me know, otherwise, this recipe is terrible in my opinion.

Salsa is the fresh condiment you can make at home and put on everything.
