Pico de Gallo

This recipe is easy peasey. The only thing you have to worry about is making sure you reallllly wash your hands (I wash my hands... apparently not well enough though) after you cut the jalapenos...which I seem to never learn my lesson from. I always end up touching my eyes and going through that painful process.

Anyways, I made this spectacular and easy dish TWO nights in a row. Friday night I had a mini taco night with some of my friends were I tried a chicken liver taco....yeah it tastes like it sounds-not appetizing at all. This is the third time I have gone out of my box to try these and not liked them. Saturday was of course Salsa Spectacular, a smashing good time. I NEVER get tired of chips, salsa and guac. NEVER.

I managed to get some measurements Friday, but Saturday I just went with taste (which is one of the best things about this recipes) because I just bought a whole bunch of bulk ingredients for all of the salsas. My ingredients are a great guideline to follow, and just adjust them to your own personal tastes! I could eat this by the spoonful.

Pico de Gallo

Ingredients (serves 4-5)
3 Roma/Plum tomatoes
1/2 red onion finely chopped
1 jalapeno (seeded and chopped)
2 juicy limes
~2-3 Tablespoons chopped cilantro

1. Mix all ingredients together.
2. Squeeze the one lime over the mixture, taste to see if you need/want the other.
3. Eat with chips, spoon over a taco or some meat or put on a salad.

-If you want it really spicy you can leave the seeds in the jalapenos.
-I say two juicy limes, because recently I have been getting limes with very little juice.


  1. Yes, this is the ticket, easy peasy and I have all the ingredients. Time to break out the chips! I would rather spend a lot of time on the main course rather than salsa so I am glad to come across this. Glad you posted this!

  2. Love this, April! And what an important warning..I took out my contacts once when I still had some pepper oil on my hands...oops. You can't clean that off contact lenses :/

  3. What a perfect addition to a Cinco de Mayo celbration. It looks beautiful and sounds delicious. My family will love it. I'm new to your blog but I plan to return. I really like the food and recipes you share with your readers. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary
