Pico de Gallo

The lack of spicy pepper doesn't detract from the fresh, crisp flavors of the tomatoes, onions, and lime. It's also healthy and leaves you wishing you had made extra.

  • 2 cups fresh tomatoes diced
  • 1 1/2 tbsp fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 tbsp red onion diced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp garlic minced


  • Using a sharp knife, dice the tomatoes, onion, and garlic (hint- I use so much garlic in my cooking that I buy garlic pre-minced in large jars and get great results). Take care to get rid of as much of the tomatoes’ juice and seeds as possible.
  • Roughly chop your cilantro. It has a strong flavor so add this to suit your taste.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, onion, cilantro. Add in the garlic, salt, and lime juice (to taste) and toss.
  • Serve with tortilla chips or use in another recipe.
