Homemade Pico de Gallo is fresh, easy, and so delicious. It is the perfect dip for tortilla chips or topping for tacos or enchiladas. This recipe is a twist on classic pico de gallo and adds cucumber for even more fresh flavor. This recipe is Whole30 compliant, gluten-free, and Paleo friendly. 


  • 2 cups finely diced grape or roma tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup finely diced cucumber
  • 1/21 whole finely diced seeded jalapeño (optional)
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (plus more to taste)


  1. Add all of the chopped ingredients to a mixing bowl and then add the salt and lime juice.
  2. Use a spoon to stir everything together until well combined. Give the pico de gallo a taste and add more lime juice or salt to suit your tastebuds. Serve and enjoy!
