1red bell pepper,stem and seeds removed, finely diced
1-2garlic cloves,finely minced
1small jalapeño,seeds removed and minced
Prepare the Ingredients: Dice the pickles, onion, red bell pepper, and jalapeño. Mince the garlic. Ensure the ingredients are uniformly chopped for even flavors.
Combine Ingredients: Pour the pickle brine over the diced ingredients in the mixing bowl. Gently toss everything together to ensure the brine coats the vegetables evenly.
Season: Season the mixture with salt and black pepper to taste. Remember that the pickles and pickle juice are already salty, so you might not need much additional salt.
Marinate: Cover the mixing bowl with plastic wrap or transfer the mixture into a sealable container. Let the Pickle de Gallo marinate in the refrigerator for at least a few hours or preferably overnight. This allows the flavors to meld and develop.
Adjust and Serve: Before serving, give the Pickle de Gallo a gentle stir. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed. Serve as a condiment, dip, or topping according to your preferences.
Storage: Store any leftover Pickle de Gallo in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Consume within 2 to 4 weeks for the best quality.
