Authentic, fresh, Mexican Pico de Gallo, aka Salsa Fresca, is super easy to make and can be used in so many ways, from topping chicken or fish, adding to tacos, salads, and more, or just serving as a salsa with chips! We even eat it at breakfast! Even better, there is no cooking involved in making pico de gallo so it's especially good during the summer when it's too hot to cook much! You just chop up the tomatoes, onions, jalapeno, garlic, and cilantro, toss it with a little lime juice and a bit of salt, and you're good to go! Great for parties, Cinco de Mayo, tailgating, and so much more!
