Peruvian Green Sauce
  • 2 jalapenos, including seeds & ribs, cut into large chunks (for a milder version you can take out some seeds or use 1 jalapeno)

  • 1 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
  • 2 tablespoons Cotija cheese (can substitute Parmesan cheese)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar (white wine vinegar is fine)
  • 2-3 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 20 turns freshly ground black pepper
  1. Put all ingredients in a food processor or blender and puree together.
  2. Taste to see if it needs more salt or more lime.
