In NYC, there is a Cuban restaurant, called Tina’s. Any Cuban food you order, always has this fantastic green sauce as an accompaniment. My daughter would order a pint to go and we would use it for everything. I decided to try making my own, and after many hits and misses, came up with the sauce pictured above. Let me say, that it has come out absolutely delicious and goes great even on hot toast!
3 Jalepenos (increase or decrease the quantity – as per taste).
4 -5 cloves of garlic
1 large bunch of cilantro or hara dhania (one and the same thing)
Juice of 2 limes
3/4 th to 1 cup mayo
1/8th cup olive oil ( approx 4 tbsp)
Salt to taste
Wash and drain the cilantro well. Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend till smooth.
Bottle and let it rest in the refrigerator for 24 hours before using, as all the ingredients bloom while resting!
