I have been on a mission to recreate this since it was served to me in a Peruvian restaurant over a year ago. Countless tries, I think I got it down to just how I remember it. This is a sauce common in Peruvian dining and it is often served with roasted chicken.
What you need
- 1 cup fresh cilantro
- Juice from 1/2 a lime
- 2 stalks of green onions (chopped)
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon ketchup
- 4 tablespoon parmeasan cheese
- 2 jalepeno (chopped) *
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
- 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt **
- Salt and Pepper
** The traditional recipe uses mayonnaise, but since I don't care for mayonnaise I used greek yogurt.
* Adjust for spice tolerance
Step 1: Puree all the ingredients (except the yogurt) in a blender or food processor.
Step 2: Add yogurt and process until you have a creamy and smooth consistency
Step 3: Season with salt and pepper
Step 4: Chill till its ready to serve
[I usually prepare this the night before I want to serve it - it tastes even better after 24 hours in the refrigarator)
This is the sauce for everything. Serve with french fries, roasted potatoes or roated chicken.
