Essential Pico de Gallo

This superhero of the salsa world combines zingy, punchy flavor with a rainbow of fresh color. It’s as versatile as it is vibrant and ready to tango with whatever you pair it with. Grilled meats or fish, tacos, nachos or burritos. It may be Mexican, but it goes with everything.

Makes about 3 cups



  • white onion icon
    ½ white onion

    peeled and halved

  • jalapeño pepper icon
    ½ jalapeño pepper

    stem removed

  • cilantro leaves icon
    ½ cup (½ oz) cilantro leaves
  • Roma tomato icon
    1 lb Roma tomatoes


  • fresh lime juice icon
    1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • kosher salt icon
    1 tsp kosher salt


  • 1Carefully assemble the processor with the grey spindle and green S-blade™ in the bowl. Add the onion, jalapeño and cilantro and process until finely chopped, scraping down the side occasionally.
  • 2With the cilantro mixture still in the bowl, assemble the processor with the red dicing gearbox, dicing grid and blade and dice the tomatoes over the cilantro mixture. Remove the dicing grid and season with lime juice and salt.
    Tip: Use the red dicing cleaner to push through any tomato caught in the dicing grid.
  • 3Your ‘pico’ will keep in the fridge for 3 days in an airtight container. It’s fresh and perky on day 1, but also good on day 2, once the flavors have melded a little. It pairs with anything from the grill or barbecue, but also loves eggs, burgers and baked potatoes. Serve it simply as a salsa, or with anything that needs a kick…avocado toast, huevos rancheros or even your favorite pizza.
