In my home, we have yet to find that out as it’s gone within a couple of days. But if you have leftovers, just make sure you keep them in an air tight container and it will stay good for up to a week.
Does Pico de Gallo Freeze Well?
The flavor of Pico de Gallo is preserved well when frozen but the texture will change. Tomatoes expand when they are frozen so when they are thawed, they will become slightly mushy. It’ll still taste great but if you’re looking for that fresh and chunky texture, it’s better not frozen.
