Pico de Gallo

Pico de gallo – or salsa fresca – is a popular condiment from Mexico.  It is a salsa containing raw ingredients, which include diced tomatoes, onion, cilantro and lime juice.  Serrano peppers can also be added for heat.  Pico de gallo is very versatile and can be enjoyed on its own as a salad, with tortilla chips, as a topping for nachos or filling for tacos.



 

 

 

Tips for Making Perfect Pico de Gallo

 

  1. Rest before serving: Resting the pico de gallo for ~1 hour before serving allows the flavours to blend.
  2. Eat fresh:  This pico de gallo is best eaten within 24 hours of when it was made.

 

 

Recipe Q & A

 

Q:  Why must the tomatoes be seeded?
A:  The tomatoes are seeded in this recipe because they add excess liquid and are also bitter.
Q:  Can I substitute other tomato varieties for the Roma tomatoes in this recipe?
