A contemporary and delicious eco-friendly sauce with a lot of cilantro!
I am a big supporter of cilantro/coriander so I am normally in for any kind of ‘green sauce’ created with it, these kinds of as this aji verde, a Peruvian design and style sauce! The key component in this sauce is 1 bunch of cilantro, alongside with a chili pepper, garlic, lime juice and salt. The foundation of sauce is mayonnaise which makes this a creamy sauce which is the excellent combo with the fresh cilantro and lime! Some optional components involve: cheese, cotija if you can uncover it, or parmesan, and mint, both of which are awesome additions! Aji verde is wonderful for dipping crackers, chips, and/or veggies into, it is great on grilled hen, steak, and so forth., and it makes for a delicious salad dressing!
Note: The chili that is generally used is an aji amarillo, but it is not so straightforward to obtain close to here… You can find jarred aji amarillo paste in merchants or on the web and you can also just use a jalapeno pepper. The aji amarillo adds their personal unique flavour, but this sauce is super tasty with or with no it!
Notice: The mint that from time to time made use of in this is typically huacatay (Peruvian black mint) which is also complicated to get about right here. You can discover jarred huacatay paste in suppliers or on the web or you can simply use mint. The huacatay has it’s possess unique flavour but mint is fantastic in this as perfectly!
Feel free of charge to insert parmesan (or cotija) and mint (huacatay paste)!
