"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!"

"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."
"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.)"
"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 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."
"This is very fresh tasting! I paired it with some beef enchiladas! Excellent recipe :-)"
"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!"
"Mmmm, this was so good. I served this with chicken and zucchini quesadillas and it tasted like something I had at a restaurant. Now if I only had a bag of chips to finish the leftovers....."
"This recipe takes me back to high school...my boyfriend was Latin and his mother taught me to make her secret recipe pico de gallo...it was amazing! I remember she would make huge batches of it and use them as decoration in her Latin inspired kitchen. Every single time I was at that house there was a pot of Mexican rice on the stove...there for anyone who wanted it; anytime. And for special dinners, we would make homemade tortillas...delicious! Thanks for bringing up such a happy and cherished memory! Oh, since no one here knows her...her secret ingredient was lemon juice instead of lime and lemon pepper...just a tad! Linzi"
"Truly outstanding--full of fresh flavors that work perfectly together--I wouldn't change a thing!! My DH and I had this in place of salad dressing on a vegetarian taco salad (corn chips topped with chopped lettuce, refried beans with taco seasoning, pico de gallo, and shredded sharp cheddar cheese)and it was both delicious and lower in calories than traditional taco salad. This recipe is definitely a keeper--thanks so much EdsGirlAngie!!!"
"This recipe is too good. Since I first made it I had to make it every day for the family request. Unfortunately, I don't have jalapeno available so I have to substitute it with some other hot pepper or Hungarian pista. I also add 1/2 green pepper. Delicious. Thanks for posting."
"Perfect for our taco night dinner. Refreshing and with the right amount of heat."
"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."
