Mango Pico De Gallo Recipe

Updated on April 3, 2018

What is pico de gallo?

Pico de gallo is a condiment that is made from fresh, uncooked vegetables and/or fruits. It can be a fresher, healthier alternative to salsa. The translation of pico de gallo is "rooster's beak". It has been said that pico de gallo was called "rooster's beak" because of the long, red, spicy peppers that were used to make it. I however, do not use long red spicy peppers in my recipe.

My preference is pico de gallo over salsa. I like the chunky, firm texture over the saucy texture of salsa. My favorite dish to top with pico de gallo is fish tacos. It can also be served with chips, burritos, and my son likes to eat it plain with nothing but a spoon. To each his own. :) This is one of my favorite recipes for pico de gallo, and I wanted to share it with you. Enjoy!

Ingredients

1/4 Cup Red Bell Pepper-Diced

1/4 Cup Yellow Bell Pepper--Diced

1 Tablespoon Garlic-Minced

Directions

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl and enjoy. Pico de Gallo is best when served fresh. It can be refrigerated but try to use it up within 24 hours. It will become mushy and juicy the longer it is stored.

      I had to say salsa in my vote because I've never had Pico De Gallo. But I've always wanted to! If only I knew someone or was related to someone or my cousin was married to someone amazing who could teach me! ;)

      I've been eating pico most of my life, and never realised the literal translation of the dish. An anglo friend of my told me. How pitiful is that? However, this recipe is awesome. Thanks!

      Well, I really had to lie on my vote b/c I love both salsa and pico de gallo equally. I make them both myself and making the salsa is quicker for me than making the pico.

      voted up and useful for its recipe.

      (Oops, think I voted for pico 2x = oh well!)

      Like you, I much prefer pico over salsa. I am not a fan, however, of tomatoes . . . so I am often looking for pico with a different twist. Your recipe does look tasty. Thanks!
