Pico de Gallo

I love Mexican and Tex-Mex food .... it's definitely one of my favorite things! I enjoy Pico de Gallo (aka Salsa Fresca) with numerous dishes. It's great on tacos, burritos, fajitas, tostadas, scrambled eggs ... or just eat it with tortilla chips! Pico de Gallo is a fresh, uncooked salsa. There isn't the amount of liquid in a normal salsa. This version is not spicy, although you could add additional jalapenos or use serrano peppers for more heat.

This Pico de Gallo is perfect for my Homemade Mexi-Melts, too! You can find the link to them below .... they're an easy weeknight meal solution! Delish!

  7. Hi Jamie, I love pico de gallo also. It's so easy and it can add great flavors to a plain grilled fillet of sole or simply grilled chicken breast. Wow, that sounds so good doesn't it? Now I'm hungry.

    Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friends Friday.

  20. Jamie, it's always posts like this that make me slap myself on the forehead and wonder why I never thought to blog that recipe. You know, simple things that taste great, like pico de gallo. I make this stuff all the time (though in Costa Rica we call it chimichurri.) Your food photos are really great. I can tell you've spent a lot of time practicing and learning about foodie photography. Way to go! Thanks for sharing your recipe.
