pico de gallo

by Brittney

Pico de gallo or salsa fresca is my absolute favorite salsa recipe and can always be found in our house when tomatoes are in season! Simple and vibrant, this fresh salsa is great served with tortilla chips, over grilled chicken or alongside your favorite Mexican fare!

Hello! Today we’re making the classic Mexican tomato salsa – pico de gallo! This fresh salsa may be one of the easiest to make, but it’s also the best and most delicious! We make this salsa all summer long whenever we can find tomatoes ripe and ready to be picked. We’ve used all sorts of tomatoes in our pico de gallo, but our favorite varieties are usually roma or plum tomatoes for this particular salsa.

Sometimes called salsa fresca, pico de gallo is a chunky dip made with tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, lime juice, cilantro and salt. And the best part – you only need a few minutes to whip up this delicious salsa! Just chop up all the ingredients, mix, and serve with tortilla chips. It also goes great with tacos, on a salad, or really with any Mexican dish!
