Tomato Salsa or Pico del Gallo

This is the most basic salsa that I make all summer long when tomatoes are in season.


  • 1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped white onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 a jalapeno, seeded and minced or more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice optional
  • salt to taste


  • Mix everything together and taste. Adjust as needed.
