Daryl's Green Sauce 2

Daryl’ Green Sauce:

I first tried “green sauce” at a S. American restaurant near where I live, and the owner of the restaurant told me that it’s Peruvian Green Dipping Sauce, especially for bread! It came on the table when we sat down, and I immediately started using my palate to determine what was in it. There are many variations of this sauce out there, so just Google “Peruvian Green Sauce,” and you’ll find an easy recipe.

Here is mine. It’s very simple/basic, and it can be done in a blender or food processor. I use the food processor. See the before photo here: https://365project.org/darylo/2021/2021-02-16

See How I used it in a dish here: https://365project.org/darylo/album4/2021-02-16

1 big bunch fresh cilantro (also called Coriander)

Wash it thoroughly and leave wet. I cut off the ends of the long stems, but I keep stems intact

2-3 Green onions, roughly chopped, tossed in food processor

1 garlic (or more-it’s really up to you) tossed in food processor

I-2 jalapeno peppers (I use one and go from there--cut out the seeds and the fleshy lining of the pepper is too much heat for you). You can always use Cayenne Pepper, red pepper flakes, anything! OR ¼ bell pepper if you don’t like heat OR nothing!

Juice of 1 large lime, tossed in the food processor.

Salt to taste.

Once everything is in the food processor, you just let it do it’s thing! I keep it on until the mixture is well-blended--all of it. I may add more lime or just some water to make it less thick.

Optional add-ins many people like to make the sauce creamy:



Olive oil

Greek Yogurt

I prefer mine without add-ins, but when I do, it’s usually avocado! My husband hates Mayo, but I do like vegan Mayo a lot, so it’s an easy thing to make the sauce creamy.

I hope this helps some of you with the sauce. You can’t really ruin it, so give it a try and let me know how it works out!

This is a great after shots. I have been wondering what this green sauce is that you keep referring to. I may have to give it a try. I’m pretty much a basic food eater and green sauce sounds pretty exotic but after seeing your recipe it sounds kind of good. Thanks Daryl.

@grammyn It's honestly an everything sauce--use it as a dip, use it on top of any protein, mix it in rice. It's hard to mess up.
