Homemade Pico de Gallo

There are some store-bought items I love, but Pico de Gallo isn’t one of them! That’s because I’m picky when it comes to my favorite fresh salsa. What’s so great about making it yourself? Let me tell you!

My Favorite Fresh Salsa

When you’ve got yummy tomatoes, it makes sense to turn them into 2 things. The first is BLT’s! The second is Pico de Gallo! Pico de Gallo is a super fresh, Mexican salsa that turns ANYTHING into magnificence. And the best part about it is that it’s simple. Simple in the best way possible.

Why Make it Yourself?

I understand that you can buy it at the grocery store. BUT, as with all store-bought stuff, you can’t control what’s in it. That means no customization. And for me that means, no thank you. Because I LOVE being able to customize my eating experience. For example, I love spice and I love cilantro, so I’m going to load up on those ingredients for my pico de gallo. I can control EVERYTHING, and I love that. That’s what makes making it yourself so awesome.
