  • 8 Roma tomatoes seeds scooped out, diced small
  • 1 jalapeno diced fine
  • ½ red onion diced
  • ¼ cup cilantro fresh, chopped
  • ¼ cup lime juice from about 2 limes
  • ½ tsp salt or to taste
  • ½ tsp pepper or to taste


  • Chop the ingredients: Dice the tomatoes and onion into small 1/4" cubes. Dice the jalapeno as fine as you can get it, and chop the cilantro well.
  • Mix the ingredients: Add the chopped ingredients to a bowl and pour in the lime juice, then season with salt and pepper. Toss everything until well combined and let the ingredients sit together for at least 10 minutes before serving.


Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 days. As excess liquid collects, you can drain it off and refresh your pico de gallo with a spritz of lime juice and some more seasoning. I don't recommend freezing this recipe. The fresh ingredients will get soggy and lose their shape after thawing.
