There’s no need to buy pico de gallo before a party when homemade pico de gallo comes together so easily. All you need is a handful of ingredients, and at least an hour to let it sit in the fridge. Using fresh lime juice and avocado really makes all the difference, so don’t settle when it comes to these crucial ingredients. For a less heat-intensive pico, use Serrano peppers—for more heat, go for jalapeños.



How to Make It

Toss together first 6 ingredients in a medium bowl. Cover and chill 1 hour. Season with salt to taste.

This salsa was great. I use a very rip avocado and it was fantastic.
