Pico de Gallo

Pico de Gallo

Fresh tomato salsa (or Pico de Gallo) can be made just before serving your meal. Enjoy it with chips or as a condiment for a main course. When chopping fresh hot peppers, add the seeds with the ingredients if you’d like more heat.


  • 4 hot peppers
  • 1 sweet pepper
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 2 limes
  • 2 finely minced garlic cloves
  • Fresh parsley and/or cilantro to taste
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper


Finely mince the hot peppers, discard seeds (include seeds for more heat) and combine in a small bowl with the sweet pepper and tomatoes, both coarsely chopped. (This can also be done in a food processor.) Squeeze in the juice from the limes. Add the minced garlic, fresh parsley and/or cilantro to taste. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Stir to combine.
