Well, it’s not a sauce per se, more like a thick salsa that’s not a salsa….get what I mean? Maybe I can call it a thick guacamole??? It has the magical avocado…it also has load of fresh herbs, pistachios, and some kick with jalapeños!
You can use this on ANYTHING. Nachos, fish, chicken, steak, a dipping sauce for sweet potato fries, or those awesome mozzarella sticks, use it as a dressing for a pasta salad or as an add on to a crudités platter! It’s endless!!! It’s also quick, all into a food processor and go go go!
So on a mission to always find GOOD alternates, that still taste amazing, look good and are healthier than mayonnaise, processed tomato sauce or all the other stuff that you accumulate in that side door of your fridge!
Although shelled pastachios are a bit pricey, it’s worth the splurge, and a 200g bag gives you enough nuts for at least 3 recipes. (So a good investment, as this will become a staple and an addiction)
1 cup of flat leaf parsley and coriander, loosely packed – combined
1 jalapeño pepper, seeds and ribs removed
2 cloves of garlic
Juice of two limes
1/2 cup of water
1/2 cup of olive oil
2 teaspoons of salt
1/2 cup of pistachios
Add all ingredients besides the pistachios, into a food processor, pulse until combined. Add the pistachios and blend.
Taste for seasoning, but it should be all good and delicious!
