DescriptionSalsa Fresca is also known as Pico de Gallo (roosters beak). You can find a similar pico de gallo recipe to this one here if it suits your taste better. Salsa Fresca is a coarsely chopped salsa, consisting of onions, jalapenos, tomatoes, cilantro and lime juice. This is great on fish but also great in salads and of course the tortilla chip!


  • 4 medium ripe tomatoes, cored, seeded, finely diced
  • 1/4 white onion, minced
  • 2 jalapeno chiles, stemmed, seeded if desired, minced
  • 1 bunch cilantro, leaves only chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of freshly ground black pepper


  • In a mixing bowl combine all the ingredients.
  • Stir and toss well.
  • Eat right away.
  • Store in a covered container no more than one day.

Quick notes

You can get a lot of this on one tortilla chip! :-)

Great on fish and chicken.
