Fresh Pico de Gallo

There are few things in this world that are more refreshing than homemade Pico de Gallo. The crunch, the spice and the flavours come together to create the perfect addition to chips, tacos, or just stand-alone. Easy to throw together using ingredients you likely have on-hand, this recipe is a fool-proof choice for you next Taco Tuesday!

I like adding a couple cloves of garlic to mine as I am a garlic addict. However, traditionally Pico does not include it, so feel free to leave that out if you like!

Prep: 20 minutes

Total: 40 minutes


1 small-medium red onion, finely chopped
2-3 jalapeños*
2 limes, juiced
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
6 Roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 tsp. salt

* I use 3 jalapeños if I’ve bought them from a grocery store as I find them to be not as spicy. If I’ve grown them myself, or purchased them from a local source, then I use only two.


  1. Mix diced red onion, jalapeño peppers and lime juice in a bowl. Allow to rest for 5 minutes. ( I sometimes like to roll my limes out to really get the juices flowing)

2. Mix in Roma tomatoes, garlic, cilantro and salt. Allow to stand for at least 15 minutes. Enjoy!

Fresh, crunchy and delicious!
