What is Pico de Gallo? https://tastessence.com/difference-between-salsa-picante-sauce-pico-de-gallo

This uncooked salad prepared with diced ingredients is also known as salsa fresca, salsa picada, and salsa Mexicana. It is another type of salsa with a chunky texture as the ingredients are chopped/diced instead of being cooked or blended together.

Pico de Gallo...

Serving size - 2 cups
Cook time - 10 mins
Ingredients
Tomatoes, 2
White onion, ½
Serrano pepper, 1
Cilantro, chopped, 2 tbsp.
Lime juice, 2 tbsp.
Extra virgin olive oil, 1 tbsp.
Salt, to taste

Directions...

Dice the tomatoes and white onion into small bite-size pieces.
Mince the Serrano pepper properly (you can choose not to include the seeds).
In a bowl, add all the ingredients in and combine properly.
Do a taste test to check whether you need more salt or lime juice.
Leave the pico de gallo aside for at least 10 minutes before serving.

While preparing salsa, always use fresh ingredients to get the maximum amount of flavor. Also, avoid storing it in the refrigerator for more than a day or two. You can prepare either recipe and serve with your dish to not only add a variety of colors to the dish, but also to elevate its flavors.

You're right, it does I simply cut 'n pasted the recipe without thinking to mention or add the garlic.

My bad...but, good catch, CD.

I never buy or eat store-bought salsa/picante or pico de gallo. I always make my own.

This may shock/ horrify/ bring up feelings of great pity, but China doesn't have salsa

In the larger cities one might chance upon it in the foreign section of AP supermarket...And an occasional restaurant might serve it... But for the most part it is up to one to make salsa for friends and family... Tortilla chips too...

Sigh... Canada in two weeks... Will eat a gallon of salsa in the first few days.. Mine is never as good as my mother's...

Now I am hungry.. Gonna go eat some BBQ'd chicken neck

When I Was Much Younger
I Only Ate Pace *Hot*
Doritos, And My Pepper Sauce Was Tobasco Only

But Now I Like The Cheap White Corn Tortilla Chips
Thinner The Better
All The Various Red Sauces
Although Tobasco Is Still My Sub Seasoning
I've Also Decided I Prefer That Fresh Garden Salsa
They Bring You Out With The Chips At Restaurants
I Keep The Stuff Made-Up Handy
Even Though I'm Not A Real Chips & Salsa Type Anymore

I've Seen It Called A Couple Other Things Too
But The Fresh Chopped Ingredients Makes It Really Refreshing
Lots Of Garlic, Cilantro, Onion,
....And It Ain't Proper With-Out Lime Juice
Makes It Plenty Sharp The Next Day
Without Loading It Full Of Chilis
