    Altered ingredient amounts. Very good, but needed a little tweaking. First of all, 2 sprigs of coriander is not NEARLY enough for my family. I used 2 tablespoons of coriander, chopped in the food processor. I also only used about 1/4 of a white onion and 3 green onions, added the juice of 2 limes, and used 2 cloves of fresh garlic instead of powder. (This was for a double batch BTW.) That said, it was an awesome pico! Everyone loved it, even my 2-year-old. With the adjustments to make it more authentic, it's definitely a keeper. Thanks for the inspiration, Paula!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. This was good, but you forgot a lot of ingredients to make this great! First of all use LIME JUICE!!!! It really gives it that needed 'punch', I usually use a whole lime juiced. Also, I add some cubed up avocado, and usually I use fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. Add the lime juice for sure though and you won't believe the difference in this reicpe!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. This is a good basic pico de gallo. However my family likes more coriander flavour, so I used a half bunch and added fresh lime juice and minced garlic, rather than powder. Yummy with chips, tacos, or even mixed into bland chicken salad.  -  29 Sep 2008
