Pico de Gallo

Of course, wonderful with tortilla chips but yummy as a grilled chicken or fish topping too ;-)


  • 2 firm ripe tomatoes, finely diced
  • Ad
  • 1/4 large red onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced, or more to taste ;-)
  • 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 tsp. lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp. plus 1 tsp. distilled white vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. plus 1 tsp. vegetable oil
  • Salt to taste


Place the tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, jalapeno pepper, garlic and lime juice into a large mixing bowl. Pour in the vinegar and vegetable oil and gently mix to combine. Season with salt to taste.

Cover, and refrigerate 1 hour before serving.

Thank you Deeli,

We like this with fajitas better than other sauces. Something about the freshness is just so nice and cool.

Thank you PookaRina Julia :-)

I am with you about using it for fajitas :-) Do you like lighter fresh sauces with pasta too? If so, you might really like this recipe:
