"Fresh mild salsa. The flavor is best after it sits for a while as the lime juice will mellow out the flavor of the onion and the salt will bring the juices out of the tomato. If you want to make it fast, chop everything in a food processor, but you will not get the same texture as hand-chopped salsa. Also, if you want it spicy add a little chopped jalapeno. Last, you can use the juice from this pico de gallo to make a quick guacamole, just add some of the pico de gallo juice to the avocados, some extra salt, a little mayo, and your guacamole is ready!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

white onion, diced
salt, or to taste
Great simple authentic recipe. Absolutely delicious! Adjust lime to taste.
Maybe Scott's limes are drier than mine but 6 limes to 3 large tomatoes is way over the top for us. I added a finely diced jalapeno, which the recipe does not call for. This could easily be adjusted and is similar to the way I usually make Pico de Gallo but as written, it isn't for us. Thanks though.
My coworker makes this and we don't stop eating until it's gone, delicious!!!
"Make it look like the flag of Mexico" I was taught. Excellent recipe. It is made hundreds of times each day for the family tables and Mexican food restaurants of south Texas. Some thoughts about the pica (bite)--add finely
chopped, seeded jalapeno or serrano or can also leave recipe as is but add a spoonful or two of a picante sauce, Pace--made in San Antonio--is excellent. To make true Texas style--make plenty--you'll need to taste to add the chile you want. Allow it to sit so flavors can marry. Buen provecho.
This was great! I would prefer jalapenos but for non spicy lovers...perfect :) Served on top of refried bean and chicken nachos.
This was wonderful, and my Scott likes it too. I put the ingredients in the electric chopper.
But I'd like to address the lime issue. I bet Scott used Mexican limes. They are really small, like half the size or smaller of a regular lime. That would explain the large quantity. Thanks, Scott.
This was great just as it's written. The only change I had to make was using concentrated lime because I was out of limes. Fabulous!
