The Best Pico de Gallo Recipe

Nothing says summer like a fresh made, authentic pico de gallo made from fresh picked, vine ripe Colorado tomatoes, fresh cilantro, a few chile peppers and some garlic and onion…all found in the farm fresh baskets delivered right to your door by Colorado fresh produce. 

  • 1 pound ripe tomatoes
  • 2 to 3 jalapenos or hot banana peppers
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Juice of 1/2 fresh lemon (and if you want, add a little lime juice)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 clove of fresh, minced garlic (or 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder)
  • Pinch of oregano
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of chopped cilantro (about 1/4 to 1/3 of a bunch)

Dice the tomatoes, peppers and onions if you like a thicker, chunky pico de gallo.  For a smoother pico de gallo, put the tomatoes, jalapenos and onions in a food processor or blender for 20 seconds.  Then combine all other ingredients, get a bag of tortilla chips, or make a quesadilla or a fajita.
