This fresh and delicious Pico De Gallo is great for Taco Tuesday or any day of the week!

Fresh salsa is always so much better than store bought, even better than a restaurant, sometimes. My girls always devour it, especially in the summer when we can use garden fresh tomatoes.

This Pico De Gallo comes together in about 15 minutes, even with the chopping. It's best served fresh, right when you make it, so I recommend to use it immediately.

Serve with your favorite tacos, burritos or nachos or as an appetizer for your next party.

Recipe tips:

  • I usually use campari tomatoes in this recipe, however any fresh tomato will work. Campari has the best flavor for store bought and I love using them.
