Pico de Gallo

Pico de gallo is a condiment like a salsa that is made with fresh chopped tomatoes, onions and chilies. It can be used just like a salsa for dipping tortilla chips into or as a side dish or a condiment.

CookingAddic One advantage that it has over salsas is that there is less liquid and that makes it a perfect filling for tacos and burritos etc. The thing that I like most about pico de gallo is that it is nice and fresh and it brightens up almost any meal. To maximize the freshness I typically make the pico de gallo just before I use it. It is also really quick and easy to make, a real winning combo in my books! This recipe is really loose given that I normally just throw it together with what I have on hand. I do like to throw some extras in like lime juice and cilantro to brighten things up a bit. 

  • 2 cups tomatoes (seeded and chopped)
  • 1/4 cup onion (chopped)
  • 1 jalapenos (seeded and chopped)
  • 1 clove garlic (chopped)
  • 1 lime (juice)
  • 1 handful cilantro (chopped)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Mix everything.
