Pico de Gallo

I love pico de gallo because it adds a lovely freshness to your tacos, burritos, or anything Mexican you are having that day. It's great with chips and the next day with your scrambled eggs. I first discovered it when I visited Mexico and it makes my mouth water just thinking about all the ingredients blended together.  

Its great to make for a party. It doesn't take much time and your guests will be very happy. You can make it early in the day and serve later. Try it and let me know what you think. 


1 Roma tomato diced
1/2 jalapeno seeded and diced
1 tablespoon cilantro chopped
1 clove of garlic minced
2 tablespoons red onion diced
1/2 lime juice
salt and pepper to taste


Add all ingredients to a bowl, stir and let sit for 30 min to 1 hour before using or serving.  You can double but I like to use this the day of because I find the fresh tomatoes get to soft over time. Double if 


  1. LOVE fresh salsa. It's so easy to make. I don't know why I'm so lazy! xo

  2. Great use of tomato Andrea - hope you bring it on over to Food on FRiday: Tomatoes over at Carole's Chatter. Cheers

  3. I seriously need to make some pico de gallo soon because I LOVE IT!
