What kind of tomatoes should I use?

I love roma tomatoes. They have just the right amount of sweetness and to be honest, I love their size; they fit well in my small hands and I find them very easy to work with.

Can I make pico de gallo ahead of time?

Yes! And you should! I literally always have a jar of pico in the fridge and I swear it only gets better with time. It’s delicious fresh, but the longer is marinates the more intense and distinct the flavors become.

What should I serve pico de gallo with?

Pico de gallo is the little black dress of condiments. You can dress it up, dress it down. You can top your chicken tacos with it, pile it on slow cooker barbacoa beef, add it to your avocado toast with a fried egg or top your chipotle alfredo with it! The best part about this pico de gallo, besides it’s amazingly fresh flavors, is that it’s nearly calorie free! So you can load up on taste without being weighed down by extra calories.
