The hardest, or I should say, the most time consuming part of any recipe for Pico De Gallo is actually preparing the ingredients. So regardless if you are using this recipe for Pico De Gallo or any other recipe, just be prepared to do some chopping, mincing and dicing.
Sweet Onions are the way to go for most recipes, but the best to use for this recipe for Pico De Gallo. I like to dice them up as small as possible so you don’t chomp down on big chunks of raw onion.
Fresh Lime juice is the only way to go for this recipe for Pico De Gallo (or any recipe in my opinion) because the taste is so much cleaner and aromatic than that reconstituted and condensed stuff.
For this recipe for Pico De Gallo you will need to dice some tomatoes. I use Roma tomatoes in this recipe for Pico De Gallo because they are usually the cheapest and the slender form makes them easy to work with.
Next, I always mince up the Cilantro last because it tends to leave a nice dark green chlorophyll stain on the cutting board that tends to rub off on whatever you cut on the board next. In this recipe for Pico De Gallo that doesn’t matter so much, but in general that is what I do.
I actually like a jalapeno in my recipe for Pico De Gallo as well as a clove or two of fresh garlic, but some people just want the basics. So feel free to add these if you like, but this recipe for Pico De Gallo works without it too.
Must add the flavor enhancers, Salt and Pepper, to most anything-even some baked goods, but most definitely to this recipe.
An added benefit to this recipe for Pico De Gallo, you can mix it with some smashed avocado and you have a great guacamole!
