Pico de Gallo with Sherry Vinegar Recipe

Not exactly the classic recipe of tomato, white onions, Serrano chile and a hit of lime juice. It came from the need to "harvest" tomatoes before they went bad and a bottle of Pedro Ximenez Sherry Vinegar. With only a 1/4 cup of vinegar, red onions and tomatoes the classic is change to a sweet ingredient that rarely makes it past a bowl of chips!

Add whatever else you might want and you have a cool summer treat. The PX Sweet 100% Pedro Ximenez Sherry Vinegaris the key to success! Basic sherry vinegar will be very sharp and really too tart.
