"I literally live on this in the summer when tomatoes are garden-ripe! I prefer this to cooked salsa, and I really load up on the cilantro. Of course, you can adjust the heat and any other ingredient as you wish, but this is the basic recipe. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!"

"From South Texas we make this a lot. You can also add some avacados and queso fresco."
"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!"
"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."
"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.)"
"This is very fresh tasting! I paired it with some beef enchiladas! Excellent recipe :-)"
"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."
"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 is soooo good! I made this with grape tomatoes because I had a bunch I needed to use up; and a red onion cause thats what I had. Oh my gosh - good thing its healthy cause I can't stop eating it! Thanks for posting this recipe - I think I may live on this stuff for a while!"
"This is good stuff; it should be a food group unto itself. Here in CA we add some fresh, local chopped avocado. Yeah, dude!"
"This is fabulous pico de gallo. I love pico de gallo and always look at it in the grocery store but can't stand to pay the high price for the nice, fresh stuff. Now I can make it at home myself! It is easy and delicous! I only used half a jalapeno but will increase it to one jalapeno next time."
"My bf loved it! I used to work at Fuddruckers and forgot their recipe for pico de gallo..I like that one a lot better, but this is a good second. Thanks."
"I made this to go with our vegan mexican food night. I love pico de gallo and this recipe was simple and uber flavorful!"
"Great stuff! Love this recipe. I used local-bought vine-ripened tomatoes. Our guests demolished this!"
"this is so easy and delicious!! I served it with is such a tacos and it is good with tortilla chips as well. It was su ch a hit thatI have to make another batch.."
"I too like this simple recipe. I will add a cucumber or yellow squash to the basic recipe - whatever is ready in the garden. It all picks up the garlic, lime & cilantro."
"This was awesome! I love Chipotle's fresh tomato salsa and this was the perfect match. I love this recipe!"
"This was delicious! Thank you so much for posting."
"Delicious!! My family loves pico de gallo and were so pleased with this recipe. Super simple and easy to make. I know this will be a repeat many times over!"
