Homemade Pico de Gallo That ROCKS Our World!

Homemade Pico de Gallo.  Seriously the best stuff on the planet and honestly easy peasy lemon squeezy (literally).  Six simple ingredients, a fab-O mixer, and you have the best side known to man.

Here’s what you need:

3 Roma Tomatoes
1/8 Onion
5 Sprigs Cilantro
1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1/2 Jalapeno

Yup, that’s it!  I got a super duper mixer, chopper dealy thing from the flea market (the guy works for QVC so I’m sure you can buy it there…Ultra Chef Express).  There was a recipe book but we didn’t like the end results of the recipe they provided exactly so I started playing with ingredients a bit.  The credit for the ingredients and base recipe goes to them, we just varied on the amounts to get it perfect for us.
I came up with the perfect mix of ingredients above and I promise, if you try it, you’ll be hooked for life.  Cut the veggies up in chunks, throw the cilantro sprigs in the mix, dump in the other stuff, rock your mixer until everything starts to give, and then spin away!
5 or 10 seconds later (literally seconds…how cool is that?), you have the best Pico de Gallo EVER!
You may have your own variety, and yours may be fabulous, but this one…this rocks our world!  I love easy peasy and this fits the bill!  Try it, you’ll like it!  Enjoy!

  1. Christy, I love Pico but don’t like the heat so I don’t add the jalapeño. I still have a bit of a hard time with the onions though. Any suggestions?
