  • 2 cups diced sweet tomatoes like grape or roma about 1 pound
  • 1/2 cup diced yellow onion about 1/2 large onion
  • 1 serrano or jalapeno pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro about 1/2 bunch
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 lime juiced


  • Dice the tomatoes, onion, and cilantro.  Wash the pepper and remove the stem, seeds and ribs from the pepper and then dice that as well.
  • Mix the tomatoes with the salt and place them in a mesh food strainer over a bowl for 10 minutes. At the end of the time discard the juices that have drained from the tomatoes.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the diced tomatoes, onion, cilantro, pepper and lime juice together and mix to incorporate the flavors.
  • Let chill for 10  minutes or more.  Serve with chips or as a topping on your favorite Mexican dish.  Enjoy!


Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
To freeze leftovers drain any excess juices and place in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Pico de gallo will change texture a bit once thawed but will still be good as a salsa.
