Pico de Gallo

I have a confession.  Before this, I had never made my own fresh tomato salsa.  Can you believe it?  Me neither!  Oh man, I have been missing out!  It is so incredibly simple and I can't believe it has taken me so long.  Having farm fresh tomatoes, onion, and cilantro pack this with flavor.  There is absolutely no reason to ever buy pico de gallo from the store again.  Ever.  If you need some, just follow the instructions below and enjoy!


3 tomatoes, finely chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 large jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced (more if desired)
handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 a lime, juiced
1 Tbsp olive oil
salt to taste


  1. Combine all ingredients into a bowl and stir to combine.
  2. Let chill at least 1 hour before serving.


  1. I love homemade salsa! I lived in the Southwest for many years and learned to eat some pretty hot stuff! Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  2. wow this looks so simple an fresh! much better than store bought!

  3. I was visiting your fan page tonight and seen this gorgeous picture. I love pico de gallo.....I am pinning this so I can make my own. I'm guilty of giving in to the store bought kind.
