A box of tomatoes, a bowl of pico de gallo and a bag of tortilla chips.

Have I mentioned how much I love Beanfields? Their continued support of Plant Based on a Budget allows us to keep our resources free to you, and it's fair to say that we are completely grateful!

When they suggested a dip, I originally thought I'd do hummus, but then I realized that we don't have a Pico de Gallo recipe on our site! How did that even happen?! Since it's summer, I thought I'd remedy this serious problem! Here it is: Super easy Pico de Gallo!

  • 2 cups of diced tomatoes
  • ½ cup of cilantro, chopped
  • ½ of a red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, minced (remove seeds for less spice)
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • pinch of salt
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste


  • In a medium sized bowl, add all the ingredients and mix together. Easy peasy!
  • Store in fridge.


This is the best, classic pico de gallo I've found. Try using lemon juice if you are out of lime.
