I must have been about five when I learned how to make pico de gallo. For some reason, even as a kid, I just loved the stuff.
Even this spicy chillies didn’t stop me. Funny thing is, as much as I tried to get my own kids hooked on the healthy salsa, they just didn’t take to it until much later.
Once you learn how to make pico de gallo, there’s no turning back. Forget purchasing a salsa branded pico de gallo at the shop. It just won’t compare.
How to get this pico de gallo recipe just right
To make this delicious salsa, you need to find the freshest ingredients you can get your hands on.
If the fruit and vegetables are crisp and fresh, make something else such as my easy salsa recipe which I make when tomatoes aren’t in season.
This mildly spicy salsa (pico de galo) is all about the crisp tomatoes, onion, garlic, chillies and strong coriander.
I recommend making a couple hours before serving at most. After that, it begins to lose its crunch.
How to use this delicious salsa…
Anyone living in the US is the perfect topping for tacos, burritos and almost anything Mexican food. Try some on your eggs in the morning or garnish your steak. You’ll be glad you did.
I like to add a splash of Mexican beer to the salsa. It just seems to work.
