Easy Pico De Gallo (Salsa Fresca)

This is one of the easiest, freshest, and most delicious chunky tomato “salsas” out there! All it requires is 4 fresh ingredients – tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, cilantro, and the options are endless on what you can serve this with or on – from tortilla chips to burgers, you’ll be in love!

Recipe Tips and Notes

Use Firm Ripe Tomatoes – these work best! Unfortunately sad, soft, bruised tomatoes don’t work well for this recipe!

Hold the Seeds – Ensure you core your tomatoes and remove the seeds before chopping, or you will have a lot of excess liquid after you let rest.

Let Rest – it’s important to allow your pico to rest for at minimum 20 mins before indulging! This time allows the flavours to meld, mingle, dance, and infuse!
