Homemade Pico de Gallo

Homemade Pico de Gallo is a deliciously spicy appetizer or spread! {Vegan and Paleo} |


  • 8 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 medium white onion, diced
  • 12 jalapeños
  • 12 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup cilantro, minced


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine tomatoes, onion, jalapeños, lime juice, cumin, and sea salt. Stir evenly, and then add in cilantro.


To manage the spiciness level, for each jalapeño I add 1 tablespoon lime juice, 1/4 teaspoon cumin, and 1/8 teaspoon sea salt. From there I add a little more of each if I feel it’s necessary, often doubling the amount of lime juice, cumin, and sea salt. This is personal preference and will also be determined by the freshness of the vegetables and spiciness of the jalapeños.
