The best pico de gallo I have ever had was on our honeymoon in Cabo San Lucas. I survived on pico de gallo, fresh guacamole with chips, and pina coladas because I was scared I would get sick from anything else. That was almost 8 years ago. Now I would probably eat anything there without any trepidation. Maturity or stupidity…tough call.
This pico can compete with the pico we ate on our honeymoon. It’s also better than what I use in my Cafe Rio recipes so I have replaced mine with the Pioneer Woman’s. What she explained is usually we think the tomato is the star of the pico de gallo but actually she says “the jalapenos, the cilantro, the onions—they require equal billing with the tomatoes to make Pico de Gallo work.” I was even a little conservative in mine with the cilantro and jalapenos and will add more next time.
