Pico de Gallo Salsa ?

A Mexican Special

Pico de gallo is primarily served in Mexico to top molletes (bread + beans + melted cheese goodness). Molletes are in essence the grilled cheese of Mexico, and pico de gallo is pretty much their soul. i.e. it’s indispensable.

But I’m not making molletes, you may be thinking.

Well, then you can use it for tacos, in loaded sweet potatoes (with a drizzle of yogurt!), as a topping to Mexican rice (and with cauliflower rice), to spice up eggs, for quesadillas, as an ideal pair to refried beans…

So you’ve got options.

Just one rule: be sure to mix the ingredients right before serving (specially adding the salt). This will ensure the tomatoes are nice and plumb, rather than mushy and soupy.

Oh, and if cilantro ain’t your thing: just use parsley. Or even mint, for a nice and fresh pan-fried fish.

It’s one multi-purpose chica. ??

      Hi Shawna, I’m sorry I missed your comment! Not sure how helpful it is now, but this one has a short life unfortunately (2 days tops)- but it’s always best freshly made as it won’t be soggy. xo!

    The perfect pico recipe! I’ve made it twice in the last week and cannot wait till our garden tomatoes come in this summer – because I know they’ll make it even better. Thank you!
