jalapeno peppers, seeded
fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 cups
chopped green onions
I really enjoyed this. A good friend of mine is Columbian and offered this as a alternative to chimichurri. It has WAAY less fat than chimichurri and it tastes great. It is better to make it ahead of time though. That way the flavors have time to mix. I grilled a flank steak and used this on the steak after it was cooked. Thanks!
I don't know what happened, but I didn't care for this. The spice was perfect (subbed 5 serranos for 10 jalapenos, since I had serranos on hand). I think the vinegar is what turns me off from the recipe, even though there isn't much of it. I think next time I'd decrease the amount of vinegar, but that's my own personal preference, not the recipe's fault.
This stuff is great on everything from chips to steak. I was worried about the excessive amount of jalapenos, but it wasn't too hot. I did tone down the zing of the peppers with some Spanish onion.
This was a great with grilled steak. This was a nice alternative to salsa. And I didn't need to add any salt. it already had enough flavor to it. Recipe makes more of a party batch than a family batch.
OMG! This is a fantastic recipe. The sauce has the same taste as the sauce my Columbian friends make. A great tomato- less salsa, if you are staying away from tomatoes this summer. Eat it with everything.
pretty good sauce a lil strong on the lemon but its good! will be making it again definately
This was SO good! I made this for my Spanish group's holiday party and it was demolished!
This is better than the coloumbian restaurant I go to.I added minced garlic. My pepper plant froze so I didn't have any so I just used cayenne for spice. Delicious!
