It's called Rooster Beak, not Rooster Sweet Tooth

On PBS, there is a very strange dude telling me that HIS version of pico de gallo (a type of salsa that is not cooked, and consists of certain chopped vegetables mixed with lemon juice) calls for mint instead of cilantro. Now I'm all for doing your own thing, but COME ON! Let's see, thats:
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped white onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh jalapeno
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper, and
  • 1/2 cup chopped mint??????

What the hell kind of wierdo show is this Barbeque University?

Although, come to think of it, that might be perfect for my old pal Sue, who claimed she was allergic to cilantro....nah, who am I kidding? The perfect substitute for cilantro is Italian parsley. You can take that mint and shove it up your firebox, BBQ Steve!
