Wow! A hot sauce that is tasty and that I can control the heat! I tried the original recipe.. nice. The 2nd time I added 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 bunch cilantro.., great!. The 3rd time, with salt & cilantro, I streamed 1/4 cup olive oil into the blender INSTEAD of the mayo... Delish!!! --no mayo aftertaste, healthier and tastier-- it seems to bring out the flavor of the lettuce and cilantro. Update: This is my 5th try (you can tell I love this recipe) and I added 1/2 onion... OMG, how flavorful! That's it. I can not improve this further for my taste. A real winner!!!
My boyfriend is peruvian and i have been in search for years for the magical table aji. Its not as easy as it seems. But with this if your looking for the extra something.. My man always tells me you have to add a little red onion and GARLIC... Hope it helps
I also added salt, pepper, and cilantro and it is great.. Has a very addictive flavor because of the Iceberg. I used a food processor the first time will use a blender the next.
I am Peruvian and I would really recommend if you can find a Latin store on your area (more than sure you're gonna find it), look for: AJI AMARILLO. That's our pepper and is amazing (just be sure to wash your hands really good before you think in touching your eyes)
the sauce came out a little too bland so i tried adding about a table spoon of salt as well as some cilantro. this made the sauce a little more flavorful and everyone just enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!
This recipe came out really great when I added a pinch of salt and 1/4 cup of my home made recaito. Thanks!
When I traveled to Cusco and Machu pichu I tasted this delicious dipping sauce,but I never could recreate it. This recipe is fabulous tasting and I intend to serve it with Saltado de Pollo on Valentines day!
I made the green salsa,but I did not put any bread I added more fire! It was a succes ! A friend of mine tried it out (She is from Peru ) It did not believe it that I made it.beware it is so addictive!!!
thank you!!!for the recipe.
