Pico de Gallo (Mexican Tomato Salad)

Pico de Gallo (Mexican Tomato Salad)

Another Mexican favourite is definitely Pico de Gallo or Salsa Bandera. It is such a refreshing dish, full of nice and fresh flavours!

It can be use as a side dish or as a nibble or just as a snack with some cold beers.
I am sure that you can find this recipe almost in every Mexican recipe blog or book, so I have to have it in mine.

  • Salt to taste


  1. Chop the tomatoes, onion, coriander and jalapeño very finely, put them in a bowl, squeeze the whole or half of the lime, add some salt to taste.
  2. Enjoy this tasty salsa or salad with friends!
