PICO DE GALLO

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 horchata 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.Pico De Gallo - Fresh tomato, cilantro, onion, and jalapeno make the best salsa ever. the-girl-who-ate-everything.com

This recipe can compete with the pico we ate on our honeymoon. It’s also what I use in my Cafe Rio recipes!

I’ve decided that if I had to eat one thing for the rest of my life it would be homemade chips and Pico de Gallo. A side of guac wouldn’t hurt either.

HOW TO MAKE PICO DE GALLO

Toss the diced tomatoes, red or white onion, jalapeno, cilantro, and garlic together. Add the juice of a half a lime and add salt and pepper to taste. Store in the fridge. Serve with chips or on top of salad, burritos, tacos…you name it.Pico De Gallo - Fresh tomato, cilantro, onion, and jalapeno make the best salsa ever. the-girl-who-ate-everything.com

My friend’s son recently told me this was the best salsa he’s ever had. I’ll take that from a 10-year-old!

I started off naming this Pioneer Woman’s Pico De Gallo but have changed it a bit to fit my taste over the years.

Recipe Notes

I really like using grape tomatoes because they don't get mushy like Roma tomatoes can be.  Use about 2.5 to 3 cups of grape tomatoes!
