– 4 medium tomatoes, diced
– 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped

– 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
– 1-2 cloves garlic, minced (optional)
– 1 lime, juiced
– Salt, to taste
– Pepper, to taste (optional)

1. Prepare the Tomatoes: Dice the tomatoes and place them in a medium-sized bowl. If you prefer less liquid in your Pico de Gallo, you can remove the seeds before dicing.

2. Chop the Onion: Finely chop the onion and add it to the bowl with the tomatoes.

3. Add Jalapeños: Finely chop the jalapeño peppers. Adjust the quantity based on your heat preference. Add them to the bowl.

4. Cilantro: Chop the fresh cilantro and add it to the mixture.

5. Garlic (Optional): If using garlic, mince the cloves and add them to the bowl.

6. Lime Juice: Squeeze the juice of one lime over the mixture. This adds a refreshing acidity to the salsa.

7. Season: Add salt to taste. Start with about 1/2 teaspoon and adjust as needed. Add a pinch of pepper if desired.

8. Mix: Gently mix all the ingredients together until well combined.

9. Chill: For best results, let the Pico de Gallo sit in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to let the flavors meld together.

10. Serve: Serve as a dip with tortilla chips, or as a topping for tacos, burritos, grilled meats, or any of your favorite dishes.
