I literally pile this high on salads, tacos, chips, fajitas, quesadillas, and sliced avocado. I even love pico on my burger. Try my Enchilada Burger and you will too!

If you’ve never made Authentic Pico De Gallo Recipe, it’s a lively combination of tomato, onion, jalapeno, and cilantro. And, don’t forget the squeeze of lime. Lime totally makes it for me.

This is an easy condiment recipe to make and enhances everything you serve it with. What I like best about making pico de gallo myself is I can control every aspect of it.

  1. I hate a ‘juicy’ pico, so I get all the pulp and seeds out of the tomatoes.
  2. As well,I cut the tomatoes first and drain the chopped tomatoes on paper towels.
  3. I also find a Roma tomato to be the best for this recipe.
  4. Additionally, I like sweet onions, like a Vidalia best. You can use any variety even red onion.
  5. If you don’t love cilantro reduce the amount to your liking.
  6. For me, the tang from a squeeze of lime juice makes all the difference.

    I’m from Texas so I would add 2 more jalapenos to the Pico de Gallo. Also, unless you are going to eat it all at once, leaving out the salt will keep it fresh in the fridge for about 3 days without getting “soupy”. In fact, I usually leave out the salt for all my pasta salads, potato salads, slaws, etc. Tastes the same when salted at the table!
