Easy Pico de Gallo

A simple pico de gallo is an important recipe to have in your repertoire. I love this one as a garnish to all my favorite Mexican dishes!


  • 4 hot house tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeño, diced with seeds and stems removed
  • ¼ bunch cilantro, chopped
  • ½ lime - juice only
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper


  • Dice your tomatoes, taking care to remove the seeds.
  • Dice your onions next.  Note:  I took this as an opportunity to use my onion chopper from Williams-Sonoma.  I wish I had used this for the tomatoes too, as it created the most perfectly uniform dice!
  • Dice your jalapeño next.  Note:  I put the jalapeño into the vegetable chopper for a fine dice… in seconds!
  • Chop your cilantro and add it to the mix.
  • Squeeze 1/2 of a fresh lime into the mixture.  Note:  I used my Lemon Press from Williams-Sonoma to squeeze the lime.  If you don't have one of these yet, I highly recommend it!
  • Add the salt and pepper.  Mix to combine and refrigerate immediately.  Flavors will begin to combine, and create the most delicious pico.
  • Serve with baked chips, over grilled chicken, or with a spoon!
