Easy Pico de Gallo

We grow so many tomatoes in our yard each summer, so I pretty much alternate between making pico de gallo and greek tomato salad every week (will share this one later!)

The colors of this pico also make the prettiest presentation – I mean, just look at how vibrant it is!

Serving Suggestions

This colorful dip pairs well with a number of things – chips being the most obvious, but here’s some other ideas!

  • Pico is a great topping for tacos, quesadillas, fajitas, burritos, and anything similar
  • These flavors would also compliment a queso cheese or guacamole – sprinkled either on top or mixed in!
  • Grilling chicken or steak, but want to add something fresh with it? I love serving my pico over grilled chicken with rice
  • Nachos – if you’re making a big plate of nachos, this pic adds a really colorful touch to it – plus, it’s prettier than salsa!

Storing the Pico de Gallo

This pico can be served immediately and if you have leftovers (this is rare in our household lol), you can store in the fridge for 2-3 days. Personally, I think the pico tastes even better the second time around because all the flavors had some time to soak in together, but that’s just me!

Well, that’s a wrap! Super easy pico the entire family will love!
