Pico de Gallo

Servings : Makes 2 cups

This simple Mexican dip, which is also known as Salsa Fresca is a fresh, uncooked condiment, somewheat like a chunky spicy salsa.  Much like other salsas, it goes beautifully with tortilla chips or can be added to tacos and fajitas.


  • 3-4 fresh tomatoes, finely diced (ripe but firm)
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 2-3 jalapeno peppers or green chillies
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro or coriander
  • juice of 1 lime
  • salt to taste


Make sure the tomatoes, onion and chillies are diced very finely.  Put them in a bowl, add the chopped cilantro and give everything a mix.  Sprinkle the salt and squeeze in the lime juice. Mix again and give it a taste. Adjust if needed.
