Pico de Gallo Salsa


Pico de gallo recipe

Weight Watcher friendly fresh pico de gallo salsa that is easy to make, delicious, and ZERO SmartPoints! This salsa is perfect for fajitas, tacos, and eggs.


Living in Texas, I have the luxury of finding freshly made Pico de Gallo courtesy of my neighborhood grocery store.  I buy a package of this amazing, fresh stuff once a week, because, well my husband and I put Pico de Gallo on pretty much everything we eat.  Honestly, it’s a bit overpriced to buy the pre-made salsa when I can easily make it myself with fresh ingredients.  My Pico de Gallo Salsa recipe is easy to make and delicious.  This is a Weight Watcher friendly recipe and it’s ZERO SmartPoints for two tablespoons!


My husband and I love to add a scoop of this fresh salsa to tacos, grilled chicken, burrito bowls, salad, and eggs!  A little pro tip to keep home made pico fresh is to add just a dash of white vinegar.  By adding vinegar, this will stay fresh for up to 1 week in the refrigerator!!

I hope you enjoy these bites of flavor!
