Fresh Homemade Pico de Gallo Recipe

Fresh Homemade Pico de Gallo Recipe

Last Updated on 6th April 2022 by

Pico de gallo is a fresh salsa that is made with fresh, raw produce instead of cooked like other types of salsa. It’s so delicious on tacos, burritos, fajitas, and even on fish, salads, wraps, and more.

My fresh homemade pico de gallo recipe is not spicy. I actually don’t put any jalapeños in mine. But you can certainly add jalapeño peppers if you’d like some spice. This recipe is extremely easy to make, and takes very little time.

Pico de gallo is a traditional Mexican dish made from chopped tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and chili peppers. It is typically used as a condiment or salsa, and is often served with tortilla chips or on tacos.

To make pico de gallo, start by chopping the tomatoes, onions, and cilantro. Then, add the chili peppers and mix everything together. Season to taste with salt and lime juice, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
