Homemade Pico De Gallo

Attempted to make a Vegan 7 Layer Dip this weekend (will share that later), and in the process tested out a great recipe for homemade Pico de Gallo.  It’s incredibly easy to make, DELICIOUS, and yields a decent amount.  Although, it’s so good, not sure how it could last more than 24 hours!

Some notes

  • I made this the night before I served it, and it created a fair amount of liquid in the container.  Next time, when putting into a serving bowl, I would use a slotted spoon, so it’s not so watery.
  • Use the seeds from the jalapeno if you want to make it spicier.
  • Truth be told, I started with 2 tomatoes, and mixed in with the onion and cilantro.  I added more tomatoes, until it looked like there was an even tomato to onion ratio.  That’s the goal.
