  • 3 Roma tomatoes cubed
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Cilantro finely chopped
  • 1/2 Cup Red Onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 Jalapeño pepper Remove the seeds is optional
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • Juice of a fresh lime


  1. Wash all the ingredients with cold water

  2. Cut the tomatoes in half and clean out the seeds. Then cut them into fine cubes. The smaller you can get them the better. Add into a large bowl.

  3. With a sharp knife chop the cilantro into fine pieces. Add to the bowl with the tomatoes. 

  4. Finely dice the red onion and add to the bowl with the other ingredients. 

  5. Cut the jalapeño pepper in half. If you want your Pico De Gallo to be a little bit spicy then don't remove the seeds from the Jalapeño pepper. If the Jalapeño is enough heat for you then deseed the pepper by removing the seeds and membrane.

  6. Sprinkle the salt over the fresh ingredients

  7. Take a fresh lime and cut it in half. Squeeze the juice of the lime over all the ingredients. Stir the ingredients together, let sit at least 1 hour in the refrigerator or overnight. This lets the flavors marry together. 

  8. Serve with chips or added to your favorite dishes
