It's hot out there, but not too hot to heat things up a little bit more with a sizzling summer dish.

Good Morning America's food correspondent Emeril Lagasse put his special stamp on a Mexican favorite: pico de gallo.

Pico de gallo means the "rooster's beak" in Spanish, an appropriate name for the salsa's hot "bite."

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds ripe tomatoes, cored, seeded and diced
  • 3/4 cup white onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons jalapenos (or serrano chilies - about 3 medium), minced and seeded
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch cayenne
  • Cooking Directions

    Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir well. Cover and allow to rest at room temperature for 1 hour for the flavors to blend.
