Quick and Easy to Make Radish Pico de Gallo
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.
Enjoy this Radish Pico de Gallo with your favorite tacos or over nachos or chips.

Im thinkinng fish tacos….do you think this radish pico de gallo would be good on fish tacos?
Hi Rianna! I think that this pico de gallo would be beautiful on fish tacos 🙂
Love this recipe!! Have you ever frozen this?
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. 🙂
