Homemade Pico De Gallo


I love pico de gallo. I make it whenever we have tacos, which is almost once a week. I make a ton so I will have extra to put in my eggs, or toss in my salad. It is so refreshing, delicious, and easy to make.

You can adjust the ingredients to best suit your taste buds. I sometimes add a bit more lime, depending on the brand of lime juice I have, or I use fresh squeezed lime juice. Fresh is best, but I don’t always have it on hand.

All it takes is 2 Roma tomatoes, ½ white (or red) onion, a fist full of cilantro, fresh ground salt, pepper, and a squirt of lime juice.

Start off by chopping your tomato, onion, and cilantro.


Then mix them together in a bowl and add in your salt and pepper to taste. Squeeze in your lime juice. Mix until well combined, then refrigerate for 30 minutes. DONE!
