Comment from Sally: Pico de gallo (pee-coh day guy-yoh) translates as the Bite of the Rooster. I assume that is because the salsa (which merely means "sauce") called pico de gallo is quite fiery and has a fierce bite to it. Having never been bitten by a rooster, however, I can only offer this as conjecture. (grin)
