  • 2 tomatoes chopped
  • ½ white onion finely diced
  • 1 jalapeño diced, seeds removed
  • ½ bunch cilantro chopped
  • ¾ tsp salt


  • Wash the produce. Chop the tomato and cilantro. Finely dice the onion and jalapeno, taking care to remove the seeds. A good knife makes this easier. I like a quality chef's knife like this.
  • Mix them all together in a bowl. Top with juice from lime and salt. Stir together. The lime should be small (about the size of an egg), otherwise use half of a large lime.
  • Serve fresh! You can store this 2-3 days in the fridge in an air tight container although it is best fresh.


Feel free to adjust the amount of tomato and onion. I love onion so a good amount of onion is preferred. Also the jalapeño is seeded here for a mild pico, but you could also try it a bit spicier with the seeds. Finally toss in a little garlic to give it a bit more flavor for an added twist.
