Hollie's Pico De Gallo

There is no need to spend all that money buying a jar of salsa or Pico de gallo when it is so easy to make a fresh batch whenever you want it. This simple recipe is easily expanded or altered to taste. Enjoy some today.

Pico De Gallo on a taco!
Pico De Gallo


2 medium tomatoes, chopped
1/2 medium white onion, chopped
1 serano or jalapeno pepper, ribs and seeds removed, then finely chopped
1/8 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup lemon or lime juice
1/2 tsp sea salt


Chop, measure, and combine all ingredients and serve chilled. 


serves about 6 as an appetizer to load onto taco chips or as a condiment for burritos and tacos. Adjust the amount of pepper to your taste. Just as great without the salt!

About 10 minutes to prep, 30 minutes+ to chill, about 10 minutes to totally consume.


  1. This reminds of an excellent Bruschetta that I sometimes make, some of the ingredients are a little different but it is very good. I put this on everything, omelettes, hamburgers in place of relish, just about everything you need to put a sauce on.

  2. It is something that I definitely like to keep on hand as a quick snack or colorful garnish. I cook mexican and southwest style meals frequently, so this can be found in my fridge most of the time!
