Pico De Gallo

This is the best Pico De Gallo recipe and is made from fresh tomato, cilantro, onion, and jalapeno – makes the best salsa ever. Some people refer to this as salsa fresca.Pico De Gallo - Fresh tomato, cilantro, onion, and jalapeno make the best salsa ever. the-girl-who-ate-everything.comThe 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.Pico De Gallo - Fresh tomato, cilantro, onion, and jalapeno make the best salsa ever. the-girl-who-ate-everything.com

This Pico De Gallo 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. 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.

Industrialization was also a turning point that changed how food affected the nation. Thanks.

    Looks and sounds great! We just picked some more tomatoes from our garden and we were not sure what to do with them all. We have made marinara sauce twice already, and we were looking for something different to make. Your Pico De Gallo recipe sounds fantastic! Simple, fresh ingredients, who could ask for more? I even have a second round of cilantro out there ready for picking. Thank you.

Anyway, people bragged over my recipe which consists of tomatoes, green onions, white onions, small can of chili’s, chopped jalenpo slices, oregano, cilantro, green bell pepper, small amounts of vinegar and olive oil and lots of lime juice. Salt and pepper to taste. All items chopped and amounts vary according to taste.
