Classic Pico de Gallo



  • 5 ripe Roma or plum tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper, deveined and deseeded then diced
  • Juice of one medium lime, more to taste 
  • 1/8 tsp each salt and ground black pepper, more to taste


  1. Prep all vegetables and toss to combine a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss again. 
  2. Let sit 5 minutes, then taste. Add more lime juice, salt, and/or pepper, if needed.  
  3. Serve immediately.


Can be refrigerated in an airtight container (preferably glass) 3-4 days, but the tomatoes will release liquid. 

Toss and drain off any excess liquid before using refrigerated mixture as a dip (it’s great in salads, though).
