This sweet and spicy pico de gallo was originally supposed to be a mango jalapeno salsa. Until, my roommates and I decided to go up to a cottage for the weekend. Then, this salsa turned into “ok how much produce can I include in here so that this salsa still tastes good, yet we don’t waste a ton of groceries”.
Since majority of the ingredients in this salsa are in season, the flavors are amazing. Not one ingredient is too overpowering, in my opinion.
If you like your foods on the suuuuper spicy side, then you obviously don’t have to seed the jalapenos. I roughly seeded the jalapenos (and then forgot to wash my hands and then itched my eye- that was rough).. and the spice was just enough for me. I also used this Mexican seasoning. This is my go-to seasoning when I’m making tacos, salsas, quesadillas, what have you. I love the flavor of this stuff.
I have also included red onion, which adds a nice flavor as well. However, if you aren’t a fan of onions, they aren’t a necessary part of the pico de gallo.
