Easy Pico De Gallo Recipe

What you will need to make this pico de gallo is 5 Roma tomatoes, a white onion, half a bunch of cilantro, one large jalapeno, a lime and a dash of salt.

Start off by chopping veggies!

I suggest you pick one of these up if you haven’t already, this thing is a huge time saver when making things like Pico De Gallo.

I had another surprise hospital visit with an emergency surgery a few weeks back so I was on bed rest for a couple of days which meant my husband was on kitchen duty.

When he attempted to chop onion using the “miracle Chopper as you seen on tv thingie” I was currently using, he knew a change had to be made.

He is always solving my problems and attempting to make my life easier.

When I get admitted to the hospital for any amount of time, no matter how much I try to talk him out of it, he insists on sleeping at the hospital with me.

No matter what the contraption he ends up in is, a recliner with a rip or a pull out sofa that doesn’t pull out, he still gets up and heads to work when he can’t get time off to be by my side.

It’s pretty amazing when you think about it.

I feel the exact same way about him, I love to take care of him and enjoy spending time with him more than anyone else.

I don’t really know how I got so lucky, I am a pretty difficult person although I also work hard to be the best mom and wife possible.

It has to be entertaining to watch my two sides fight with each other, the good and the evil.

Hmm…maybe he is just afraid to leave me alone, who knows what kind of wrath I would unleash upon the world.

Or maybe its because I make a killer Pico De Gallo.

Anyway once you have a good chopping method for the ingredients, chop the tomatoes, onion, cilantro, and jalapeno then add them to a bowl.

Squirt in the juice of one lime and sprinkle on a dash of salt.

This recipe will make about 5-6 cups of Pico De Gallo.

Refrigerate and allow all of the flavors to mesh together before serving, this takes about 4 hours.

You can store the Pico De Gallo leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about a week.

You may be able to store it longer, I don’t know how long it will last because I usually eat it within a couple of days of making it.

I hope you enjoy it that much too!

I was thinking of another dish - picadillo - then realized it was a totally different one. :D Yummy! Simple and healthy as well. This would be awesome with mangoes too, as that's my side dish for grilled tuna....but it will be more of a salsa by then...

Delicious!! I love all varieties of salsa for dipping... you just can't beat snacking on some chips and pico with a beer in hand once the kids are tucked up in bed ;) We used to live in the UK and I love how much Mexican food we get to eat now... we cook it all the time too now, which I need did before we moved!

I have a work potluck this Friday and was not sure about what to bring. Now I know I can bring chips and this salsa. Looks so easy and I know my coworkers are going to love it. It will save me some time cooking too. I cannot wait to surprise them with something homemade but so easy

This recipe reminds me of my neighbor he use to always make Pico de gallo and bring it to our neighborhood functions. I didn't think I would like it at first but, gosh was it good. I need to make this recipe for the family this weekend since we are meeting up for game night! Thanks for sharing!

I've never made homemade pico de gallo but would love to try - pinning this for later. I love pico and like it much more than salsa, actually.

Not sure why you were in the hospital but hope you are feeling better now.
