Pico de gallo or salsa fresca is an authentic mexican salsa, means litteraly rooster’s beak.
Originally made from chopped ripe tomato, white onion and chillis. But there are endless variations, stirring in cilantro, avocado, lime, cucumber or mango…
If you love the traditional pico de gallo, you will find it hard to resist this tropical variation using fresh mango.
To make it you need:
- 3 medium ripe tomato diced
- 1 small mango diced (about one cup)
- 1 medium onion diced
- 1/2 cup cilantro (corriander) chopped
- 1 jalapeño seaded and minced
- 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
- 1/2 tsp salt
All you have to do is just mix these ingredients in a bowl et voila!
The versatility of this Mexican salsa is limitless! Put it on grilled chicken or steak, add it to eggs, or serve with tortilla chips.
Personally i enjoy this irresistible refreshing salsa with tortilla chips and a cup of beer. Prepare your pico de gallo and store it in a sealed container in the refrigerator, it will last approximately 1 week.
Note if you prefer smooth salsa as opposed to chunky just put all this good stuff in the blender.
