Homemade pico de Gallo in a bowl
The Quick Tip To Follow For Avoiding Watery Pico De Gallo
By Julia Mullaney
Pico de Gallo's water level depends on how you prepare the tomatoes. The key is to salt and drain your fresh tomatoes before preparing.
Salt draws water out of the tomatoes, and once the water has been drawn, you can mix the tomatoes with the rest of the vegetables without worrying about a watery mixture.
Pico de Gallo can stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to a week and a half, but as water can accumulate, it should be drained daily. Add some lime juice to keep it fresh.
