Pico de Gallo is a chunky salsa that's less saucy and less tomato forward compared with other versions. This recipe, as with most, calls for diced tomato, red onion, jalapeno, and cilantro. These elements  bring the flavor, crunch, and heat. Add a bit of garlic, lime juice, and salt to taste and you've got the perfect Mexican-style snack that will knock any store-bought version right out of the running. This salsa will keep for a few days no problem, so make it ahead of time and bring it with you to a party or potluck. Or just keep in the fridge for you and your family all week -- if it lasts that long!

Oh my goodness, this Pico de Gallo sounds and looks so amazing! It never occurred to me to use Poblano or Anaheim peppers though...I usually use green bell peppers as well as jalapeno but I think I'm gonna have to give this a try. I can't do lime juice it really doesn't agree with me but lemon juice is wonderful in Pico de Gallo!

This Pico de Gallo recipe is absolutely the best. It is so easy to make, and the flavors are rich and robust, and perfectly refreshing for all your outdoor Summer get togethers. This is a must have for any party scene. Go ahead, have a Fiesta with this homemade Pico de Gallo.

Pico de Gallo is such a good relish to put on just about anything. Except, perhaps, ice cream, lol! I just love the whole combination of flavours the tomato, onion, chili, peppers, garlic, the cilantro, the lime or lemon juice. Just perfect and in summer we sometimes even add some olive oil and use it as a cold pasta sauce. Delicious!

I like to make pico de gallo with the little sweet grape tomatoes that I grow in my vegetable garden. It is kind of tedious to chop up the little guys, but they are so sweet and have very few seeds. I would toss in whatever hot peppers are ready to be picked. This stuff makes a great condiment in tacos, scrambled eggs, or even on top of some grilled fish! I could eat it right out of the bowl!

I like this idea of making a salsa without so much tomato as I find tomato to be quite watery. I believe in leaving the seeds in the tomato as that is where the flavor is. By making this salsa with more peppers I am sure it will be very tasty. I do believe that it is a perfect additive to guacamole due to the fact that it is less saucy and has less tomato in it but it still has all the good flavor!

I will be adding this tasty pico de gallo to just about everything I make from now on!
