Classic Fresh Tomato Salsa (Pico de Gallo)

Pico de gallo is one of those recipes that only takes 15 minutes to make fresh and tastes a million times better than anything from a jar. I like mine with pieces and chunks of tomato, but If you don't want to take the time to dice the tomatoes, you can pulse them a few times in a food processor. Gluten Free + Vegan

TIPS & TRICKS

  1. Want to make your fresh salsa saucy? Place ingredients in a food processor. Pulse more for a smoother texture and less for a more chunky salsa.   .

  2. For an even more amazing flavor, put the salsa in an airtight container and chill for a couple of hours.  This lets the flavors really come together!
