My Favorite Pico De Gallo Recipe!

Can I admit that I grow tomatoes in my garden JUST to make salsa and Pico De Gallo??

I am addicted to chips and salsa – lol.

So over the years I’ve spent quite a bit of time tweaking recipes, trying to find the PERFECT Pico recipe.

Here’s the final winner! And it is so easy to make too! And it gets even better after it’s been refrigerated for a day or two. You can also freeze this Pico De Gallo. All you need to do is double bag it and get as much of the air out as possible before you seal it up.

Here’s how to make it:

(Makes 16 servings)


  • 5 Medium Ripe Tomatoes, diced
  • 1 White or Red Onio, finelychopped
  • 2 Limes, juiced.
  • 2 Jalapeno Peppers, chopped. Discard the seeds, unless you want the pico to be super spicy.
  • 1/4 cup of Cilantro, finely chopped. If you love Cilantro, add more to taste.
  • 1/4 cup Green Onions, chopped for garnish.
  • 4 cloves of Garlic, minced.
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pepper



In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, onion, jalapeno pepper, lime juice, cilantro and half of the green onion. Then season with the garlic, salt and pepper. Add the remaining green onion to the top of the Pico De Gallo, refrigerate for at least 2 hours and then serve.

  2. I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as
    you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
