Fresh Pico de Gallo is amazing served with chips, and makes an excellent addition to almost any summer meal (we’re looking at you, grilled chicken). This incredibly easy homemade salsa is packed with fresh tomatoes, onions, cilantro and more, and is ready to eat in just 5 minutes. You might even want to make a double batch, because this fresh tomato salsa has a habit of vanishing fast! MORE+ LESS-

More About This Recipe

  • I love making this basic Pico de Gallo, or Salsa Mexicana, during the summer months. Sometimes I’ll add extras like corn, chopped-up fruits (mango, watermelon, strawberries, etc.) or avocado to make it special. No matter what variation you decide to use, this is a fail-proof recipe that will satisfy family and friends every single time. Happy cooking!
