Once you try this salsa you won’t ever want to go back to those store bought varieties. I just love this salsa because it’s like nothing else, and is very fresh tasting not to mention super healthy for you. Cabbage Pico De Gallo (Salsa Fresca)

Serve along with your favorite tortilla chips or use it as a side or filling for your tacos, fajitas, burritos etc. 

Pico De Gallo is Mexican salsa also known as Salsa Fresca and made from chopped roma tomatoes, onion, cilantro, jalapeños peppers, salt, and lime juice. It’s name, in Spanish means ‘beak of a rooster’ and is believed to originate from the resemblance of the way a rooster pecks in his food to make it edible, the chopping of the ingredients which also prepares a very colorful salsa which resemble the colors of a rooster’s feathers. 

Thank you MEXICO for sharing this amazing recipe with the us. Buen provecho. This salsa is so fresh and tasty, I could eat it all day everyday!

Such a healthy snack!

I like to add finely shredded cabbage to mine, and to do that you will need a food processor. However you can omit the cabbage for a more traditional Mexican Pico De Gallo if you prefer.

That recipe is listed below and is also on this blog, however this is my favorite version and really goes a long way and feeds more people when paired with other mexican dishes.

When making this simple salsa, make sure to drain most of the liquid out of your tomatoes otherwise it will become mushy to fast. I recommend using roma tomatoes, that way there is not to much liquid.
