  1. Wow, this looks so pretty and I love that it’s not complicated to create! Anyone with basic skills of how to chop and mince should be able to whip up a quick batch of pico de gallo and serve it their favorite way. I don’t expect that there will be much left over after this is served, but how long do you think this would keep fresh if I wanted to make a big batch in advance?

  2. This looks super yummy and the best part is that it is easy to make! I love eating salsa on its own and sometimes I go crazy and add a few other ingredients like cucumbers or chickpeas, but of course, then it is no longer considered “salsa” lol.  I m surprised to see that there is no need for olive oil in this recipe? Is that the case with all salsa recipes?

    1. I think you can add whatever you want and still call it salsa!  It’s your snack, after all!  What we think of as “typical” salsa is cooked and so oil is used.  Because this recipe is not cooked, no oil is necessary but you can oil some oil if you want.
