A Simple Chunky Salsa or also known as pico de gallo salsa is a great way to enjoy fresh salsa. This chunky salsa recipe is very easy to make. You will never buy bottled salsa again after making your own fresh salsa.
I love a good fresh salsa. Fresh tomatoes, onions cilantro. A garden fresh salsa is amazing in flavor I think. Usually, fresh salsa is also known as a chunky salsa recipe.
Chunky Salsa Recipe
How did I start loving a chunky salsa recipe? My friends took me to try Mexican food at a local place in Cleveland, Ohio. I took one bite of the chunky salsa recipe on the table and that started my love of salsa recipes.
I have since then tried many salsa recipes, but always been a chunky salsa recipe that I prefer. I love the taste of that fresh salsa on a chip.
Most know that tomatoes and onions are salsa ingredients. To make a good salsa recipe, you need cilantro, lime juice, and of course jalapeño. That combination of vegetables with jalapeño busts with flavor in salsa.
Pico de Gallo Salsa
You could blend a basic salsa recipe together for a smooth salsa that almost sauce-like. Or you can make it a chunky salsa recipe! The chunky salsa is also known as a Pico de Gallo salsa, that is the simple salsa I prefer.

Personally, I like calling it chunky salsa recipe then pico de gallo. That is what this simple salsa recipe is, chunks of tomato, onion, cilantro, jalapeños all mixed together with some lime juice.
Can You Freeze Salsa?
One question I get asked is can you freeze salsa? Yes, but only for 6 months. Make sure the bags or containers are airtight. You should still leave the room at the top for the salsa to expand once it freezes.
