When the salsa in a recipe is going to be cooked, a jarred salsa is fine, but when you're using it fresh, I make my own. I followed the suggestions some people posted here, and I used a less salt and cilantro, rubbed the bowl with a crushed clove of garlic, and added a bit of chopped jalapeno. You must have the juice of fresh squeezed limes, though! That's something you shouldn't alter-not even lemons will do!

I agree with Chef. Way too much salt and a real Pico de Gallo has garlic in it (I usually put 2-3 minced cloves in mine) and that's way too much cilantro also. 1/4 of a bunch, cleaned (discard everything below the bottom leaves), chopped is about right.

A true pico de gallo also has fresh peppers, usually a jalapeno or serrano and only a pinch of salt. what you have here is a cross between brucsheta and pico de gallo.

For a good pico de gallo you should rub the inside of the bowl with a crushed clove of garlic before you start. You want a slight garlic flavor but no actual pieces of garlic as this is a fresh(raw) salsa. You do the same thing when making guacamole.
