Pico de gallo [ˈpiko ðe ˈɣaʎo] is a fancy name for Mexican salsa. This colorful appetizer contains chopped tomato, onion, fresh cilantro, lime juice, and salt. Serranos and jalapeños are optional ingredients.
Traditional salsa has a thinner consistency with more liquid. Pico de gallo is chunky with each chopped ingredient clearly visible.
