My family loves this stuff! This is the best pico de gallo recipe I have ever used. We eat it instead of salsa most of the time. Great for parties, too.

Wonderful! For years I have coveted Pico de Gallo when ever I have eaten at Mexican restaurants. This actually delivers the deliscious, fresh, clean taste without over powering the tastes of the individual veetables. This is a must if you have a garden. So easy and so deliscious. I love it with nachos and fajitas, but I also love it by itself with chips. Thanks for sharing.

Delicious! This quick and easy pico de gallo is so full of flavor. My store didn't have any key limes, so I had to use regular limes. Also, we love cilantro so I increased the amount to 1/4 cup. I have an overabundance of banana peppers in my garden right now so I threw in a couple of those as well. I served this with chicken tacos and my family loved it. Thank you for sharing this fabulous is definitely a keeper!
