Homemade Pico de Gallo (Fresh Salsa フレッシュサルサ)

Homemade Pico de Gallo (Fresh Salsa) is the best (so fresh, healthy and easy-to-make)! 
But, by simply adding Kanten Salad Flakes to the salsa makes it even better!! 
You know why? It’s because:
1. Kanten flakes absorb the excess juices (and flavour) from the salsa, preventing the salsa from being too runny.
2. Kanten is an excellent source of dietary fibre (80% by content!), while adding virtually no calories!
3. They provide an additional layer of texture and gives a sense of fullness, making it a perfect complement to low-carb meals.

-2-3 tomatoes (depending on the size)(トマト2-3個*大きさによる)
-1/2 sweet or red onion(スウィートオニオン又はレッドオニオン半分)
