Tips for Preparing your Pico de Gallo Salsa

To make this recipe WICKED fast here are a couple of tools I HIGHLY suggest in investing in. (You can also click on the images below to shop)

  1. Vidalla Chop Wizard. This baby cuts fast, uniform and beautifully. LIFE SAVER! I use it for so many other dishes too. It’s not a gadget that you will use seldom.
  2. A Citrus Press. Also, a gadget is another item I use a few times a week. Not only does it save your hand from cramping and getting juicy but it also gets every last drop out of our precious lemons and limes.

If you are going to hand chop here are my favorite tools. (You can also click on the images below to shop)

  1. a chef’s knife. Use it for the cilantro, onion, pepper, lime. Its big- so you have control when cutting food into tiny bits. and SHARP, so you can chop everything quickly! I have these Zwilling knives that are amazing. They are all our favorite knives amongst the girls on oh so. When you invest in knives go for these ones,
  2. a Serrated knife. This is for the tomatoes. Tomato skin likes to make it all complicated to cut, especially into small diced pieces. A sharp, serrated knife will do wonders.

Make a big batch of pico de gallo salsa on your meal prep day (or whenever) store it in an airtight container and eat it all week. My kids snack on it after school, throw it in our omelets, make spontaneous nachos, put it on our nachos, tacos or taquitos. We seriously cant stop with this pico de gallo!! So healthy and fresh it needs to be on your menu :)
