Quick Recipe: Pico de Gallo

Pico de gallo is funny just because its literal translation in English is “rooster’s beak.”  But rest assured, there’s no beak involved here.  There isn’t even any chicken involved.  Pico de gallo is actually a salad made primarily of tomatoes, onions and chilies, though other ingredients can be added as well.  Pretty much you can just think of it as a less liquid-y salsa.  This is our version of pico de gallo.


Pico de Gallo:

  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
  • ½ cucumber, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 green chili pepper (jalapeño or similar), diced
  • 2 tsp. lime juice
  • ¼ tsp. salt (or to taste)

In a medium bowl, mix all the ingredients until well combined.  Use immediately, or store in the fridge for about a week.

You can use your pico de gallo on nachos, in burritos or tacos, or as a topping on chicken.  It gives a nice freshness to whatever you use it in and just tastes yummy.
