"I got this recipe from a restaurant in California 10 years ago. It's been a staple in my refrigerator ever since. It's excellent with rotisserie chicken. You can lower the calories if you stream in olive oil in replace of the mayo." — Dorothy

This tastes very similar to an aji sauce I find at a local Peruvian restaurant. The first time I made this was about a month ago, and I've been hooked ever since! It's great on chicken, rice, and can even be used as a salad dressing. To achieve the preferred consistency, I like to use a mixture of two-thirds mayo and one-third olive oil instead of just mayo. Thanks Dorothy!
