Thyme Pico De Gallo

Kachumber, Pico de Gallo, Tomato Raita are some very common names for this simple quick chopped salad that can perk any dish that you put this  on as a garnish or eat it with.

This is always my goto rescue dip/salad that I always have a batch of it in my refrigerator so that I can just scoop it with a slice of toasted bread on days when I am on calls for hours for my work and really cannot move away from my laptop and code ….. uhgg not talking about work anymore.. like opening a new can of worms 🙂

The recipe is quite simple and  I usually make the salad every Sunday and I store in the refrigerator so the flavors develop overtime and i can eat it anytime during the week. Every week I try a different herb so that the flavor does not become monotonous and i have a constant change.  I started with the quintessential Cilantro herb but tried it with Rosemary, oregano, Thyme, parsley  because i buy these herbs often.

Thyme gives a Earthy, nutty note to the salad and plus when I pulls the leaves off the branch , my hands start smelling awesome for sometime.

So here is the recipe.
