I basicly made this the same way but instead of pickle I used a chopped seeded cucumber and no red pepper. We had it that way in a Mexican Resteraunt sp? My husband and I loved it. Read More

pretty good. we love pico de gallo and make it often. we love the "secret ingredient" it adds just the right amount of crispy saltiness. we use red onion Roma tomatoes and add a tablespoon of minced garlic. Read More

As far as improving on a such a simple dish the pickle goes a long way. Lime juice a must and we added garlic. Very enjoyable. Read More

Great taste! I omitted the jalapeno and instead used Hot & Spicy Dill Babies for the pickles. Thanks! Read More

GREAT recipe! I loved the tang and zip the dill pickles gave it. I also added a little shredded cabbage to add more body. Instead of the traditional taco fillings we layered the taco meat and the pico de gallo and it was fantastic!! Next time I think I may add a little chili powder too. Read More

We loved this! I did add a little bit extra cilantro but ONLY because I wanted to finish using what I had left in the fridge. I am making another batch soon to take to a pickle loving neighbor. He puts pickles in almost everything but I think this will surprise and thrill him! Read More

Good! Not quite as much heat as we like. Need to kick it up a notch for my family so next time I will add more peppers. Not really sure if the dill pickle made much difference but I will continue to use it whenever I use this recipe. Read More

This was a big hit with the family. They were scooping it by heaps on tortilla chips. It is not a typical pico flavor but it is very good and different. Read More
