Servings 4


  • 1 lb. Roma Tomatoes or 8 Roma Tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup white onion diced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1 jalapeño finely diced
  • Juice and zest of 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper


  • Finely chop the onion and jalapeño, and mix together with the lime juice, lime zest, salt and pepper in a small bowl while you complete steps 2 and 3.
  • Cut each Roma tomato in half, and spoon out the seeds. This step is optional, but if you want to prevent the Pico de Gallo from getting too soggy, then I would highly recommend doing this. Otherwise, yourPico de Gallo will produce a lot of water that will sit at the bottom of the bowl.
  • Finely chop the Roma tomatoes, cilantro, and stir together in a medium sized bowl.
  • Add in the small bowl of onions, peppers, and lime and mix well into the medium-sized bowl of tomatoes and cilantro.
  • Stir till it’s well combined. Taste test it, and add more salt, pepper and lime juice to your liking.
  • Serve and Enjoy!
