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.

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.

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.
