Oh... you're going to thank me for this one. If you've been to any Peruvian restaurant, you know what I'm talking about. The green sauce. FREAKING DELICIOUS is what it is. Usually comes in a squeeze bottle. You put it on bread, rice. It is one of the greatest things on the planet. Highly addictive... as you'll see if you make this stuff. Anyway... I was at my favorite Peruvian restaurant (also happens to be my favorite, period) and I finally met the owner. I straight up asked her what goes into it and... she actually told me. Well, friends... I got around to making it tonight and... she wasn't lying. It's exactly like they serve in her restaurants.
- 7 serrano chili peppers (seeds and veins, as well)
- 3 romaine lettuce leaves
- 1 head of garlic
- 1 head of lettuce
- Olive oil (about 4 tablespoons)
- Handful of saltine crackers (thickens it and provides a buttery flavor)
- Salt and pepper to taste (I used a good amount)
Blend, then pour into a squeeze bottle. Refrigerate for a bit. Should last for a week in the fridge. Get some good french bread and enjoy. Put it on anything you eat. Hell... bathe in it.
