I had never made Pico de Gallo before but I have eaten it and really liked it. So today I decided to make some to go with the chicken fajitas I was making for dinner. I looked though a bunch of recipes and settled on this one because it looked the most simple. Boy am I glad I picked this recipe. It was super yummy and I am sure I will be using this recipe over and over again. My husband said that I picked a good recipe too. I made the recipe exactly except I used red onion instead of white onion.

This was fantastic! I used a red onion instead but otherwise I followed the directions. So easy and so tasty that I ended up having to make more. Never again will I buy salsa when this was so fresh, easy and tasted wonderful. Great on fish, chicken, tacos, carnitas, with chips, on eggs, everything! LOLThank you for a great and simple recipe. It's a keeper!

From South Texas we make this a lot. You can also add some avacados and queso fresco.

DH can't handle spice so I use a poblano pepper instead of the jalapeno. Otherwise this is the best salsa ever. I also save all the juice it makes, add some oil and use it to marinate fish or shrimp. Nummy.

I made this just as indicated but, after reading the reviews and being a big salsa fan, I made A BUNCH. I wanted to add my two cents anyway since I used this to top a cheese and spinach omelette I made for dinner. I garnished with a few black olives. This plates so beautifully that it was shame to eat it! But I did. (So much for art appreciation.) What a beautiful omelette brunch table you could set with this. Delicious. Thanks for posting. (PS--My husband likes this just like salsa, on chips. Excellent that way too.)

Very tasty and hard to beat! Easy to make and gets devoured here! I sometimes use red or green onions if that is what I have on hand. I have also used pickled jalapenos with this and its just as good.

This turned out great. I used tomatoes and peppers from my garden. I added 1 small diced green bell pepper and used 3 small jalapeno peppers and 2 small serrano peppers. I also took Linzi's advice and added just a sprinkling of lemon pepper which really set off the flavors the everything else.

I made a small batch of this with red onions instead of white. I was wishing I had some tortilla chips to eat it with but I didn't. Had to settle for pita chips, just to try it. Then ate it with carna asada and beans for dinner.
