Fresh Salsa Recipe – Pico de Gallo

This fresh salsa recipe is called Pico de Gallo. It is made with fresh white onions, tomatoes, cilantro, jalapeños and lime juice. It is extremely easy to make and will add tremendously to tacos and burritos. It is also very pleasant to eat with chips.

You can make this fresh salsa recipe as spicy as you like. If you like it mild simply omit the jalapeños. It will still be great! Also, make sure to always use white onion for this. Any other onion will be too strong and ruin it.
