One of the easiest summer cookout and BBQ dishes to throw together is a big bowl of Pico de Gallo. Whether it’s scooped up with crunchy, salty tortilla chips or spooned on top of a juicy burger, Pico is the perfect pick.
You can jazz it up however you want, but basic Pico de Gallo starts with just 6 ingredients — tomatoes, onions, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice, and sea salt. You can adjust the level of heat or cilantro to suit your taste, swap out the jalapeno for a serrano chile, or add some diced fresh pineapple for extra sweetness.
Fresh Pico de Gallo is best eaten the day it’s made, but I don’t think you’ll have a problem watching it disappear.
