The Green Peruvian Dipping Sauce

  • Sorry pic was taken From Iphone.
I went to New York a few weeks ago and we went to this Peruvian restaurant.They served this sauce with a roasted chicken. This sauce is so good we could not stop talking about it for days! So when i came home I decided to try and make a copy of the sauce  here is my recipe. If you like Cafe Rio sauce you will like this.. it's similar.


2 fresh jalapenos, including seeds and ribs, diced

1 tablespoon aji Amarillo paste (this can be hard to find, Its usually in the mexican food section) If you can't find this product you can use green Chile sauce.

10 sprigs cilantro leaves and stems, roughly chopped

2 tablespoons grated cotija cheese(this is best) or Parmesan cheese

1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1/2 teaspoon white vinegar

1/2 teaspoon salt

Squeeze of lime
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2-3 inches of a peeled cucumber.

Blend everything together in a food processor or a blender till smooth.
Serve over a rotisserie chicken.
