Easy Pico De Gallo Recipe

My girlfriend Kate came over the other day, and we had cooking on the agenda to create some recipes for the Slightly Homemade Dinners cookbook.  A Catalina Taco Salad (yes, yum… right?) was on the list, and we needed some pico for garnish.

I looked at her and said,

Does our grocery store even have fresh pico?

She followed with,

No, but we can totally make our own… really easy.

So we rolled with it, and I’m SO thankful that we did. It was incredible.

Easy pico de gallo recipe - the cilantro and lime mixed with the tomatoes and onions are to die for! So fresh with one little trick.

There’s a Secret

I’ve never really disliked pico, but I didn’t realize how much better making fresh pico at home could be… than pico that’s pre-made at the store, or even served in restaurants.  It seems as if a lot of pico is runny and soupy, which is… well, ok. But when Kate told me the secret step to amazing pico, is to scoop out the seeds and juices from the middle… it became a GAME CHANGER.

By doing this, it creates a whole new CRISP texture that’s incredibly hard to beat.

Now we ended up putting most of this pico on top of the taco salad that we made, but we completely finished it off with a bag of tortilla chips, in no time.
