Author Notes: This recipe is a big hit with my whole extended family. We have several family members who typically never allow a fresh cut tomato to touch their lips, yet those same folks forget their tomato aversion whenever they eat this pico.

We most commonly serve this pico on tacos, but it also performs well as a colorful dip alongside corn tortilla chips.

Serves: 8


  • 4 tomatoes
  • 1 purple onion
  • 2 bunches of scallions
  • 2 packets of fresh basil
  • 1 can of black olives (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons tabasco sauce
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 limes
  • kosher salt & black pepper, to taste
