I don’t know about you, but salsas are pretty much so the center of my universe. I have a wee bit of an addiction to salsas, yes it’s true, not denying that one bit.

One of the best basic salsas ever is the traditional fresh tomatoes, onions, lemon or lime juice and cilantro. Well, for this recipe, I’ve done a little switcheroo and replaced the tomatoes with those little, peppery radishes. Therefore, I give you Radish Pico de Gallo.

Now if you’re not a huge fan of radishes, you still might enjoy this, as the radishes will take on the flavor of the lime juice rather nicely, so there’s no overpowering “radish”, peppery taste, only fresh and perfectly flavored.

If you need other salsa ideas, I’ve got plenty for you! My favorites include my Salsa Verde, Pumpkin Salsa and my recent Roasted Chipotle Salsa! All are so good, keep well and would be a brilliant addition to any Taco Tuesday or salsa bar.

  2. Im thinkinng fish tacos….do you think this radish pico de gallo would be good on fish tacos?

    1. Hi Corrie! I’m so glad you love this recipe! I have not tried freezing it before, so I can’t say a definite yes. I think you could experiment with it to see, although I would leave out the cilantro and then when you are ready to use, give a fresh bit of the cilantro to finish it off. I’ve never had enough left over to try … yet. 🙂

  3. 1/2 Red Onion, diced -No, used Sweet Vidalia Onion.
    2 Spring Onions, diced-one was enough. Love those radishes. This recipe was so refreshing, yeah family only likes Sweet Vidalia or very little onion, the radishes really make this special, keeper, thanks for sharing.

    1. Hiya! I’m loving your variation on this recipe! Sounds perfect! I’m so happy that you enjoyed it, it is a favorite warm-weather recipe that goes great with so many things.

  4. Oh my! This is crazy delicious. And I hate radishes!! But they were in my CSA share 2 weeks in a row- and I was determined to find a tolerable recipe. Instead- I found this one. Way better than just tolerable!! This might be my go to pico de gallo recipe now.

    1. Hiya! I’m so so so happy that you think it’s delicious! I know radishes can be strong and boring, but I love how they work in this recipe. I’m also so happy that you think it’s way better than just tolerable! lol … Thank you for letting me know and I hope you continue to enjoy it many times over! 🙂

  5. Hello, this is my first year growing a vegetable garden and I learning what to do with everything. How do you store it? Would this recipe be suitable for canning?
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Chasity! This recipe is leans towards a small batch type of preservation, I’ve not personally made more than I could consume within a week. Because it’s supposed to be fresh, I wouldn’t recommend to store it for longer than 5-7 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator. I hope that helps, and congratulations on the veggie gardening venture!!

  6. This was absolutely delicious, ate the whole bowl already! Thanks for this keeper! I measured nothing and just eyeballed things, still perfect.
