This is fantastic! I added 2 extra garlic cloves because we love it and used garlic red wine vinegar because I was out of regular red wine vinegar. I think it's I will use 4 cloves of garlic next time. This has the perfect amount of heat to it as well! Not hot (I used 1 ~extremely~ large jalapeño that I seeded) but very pleasantly warm. I put everything in the blender & made it in one step and I turned out beyond delicious. I made mine very smooth because my husband prefers his salsas that way. I had it on grilled chicken last night & scrambled eggs this morning. This would be a great salad dressing too. This is my new favorite sauce.

Oh it is about time I find such a perfect green salsa recipe! I grow my own herbs and cilantro being one of my favorite I couldn't wait to try this. I used red wine vinegar which I worried would be too strong or make it too vinegary but it was perfect. I used a large jalapeno seeded. Served with Pulled Beef - Venezuelan Pabellon Criollo Made for ZWT 4

As a cilantro lover this really caught my eye. I used two Thai chile peppers because my store was out of jalapenos. I also added a little more garlic. Great with chips but I've saved it in the fridge to serve with grilled chicken,which will be fabulous. For ZWT.

My sister-in-law from Guatemala won't cough up all her secret recipes, this is one of them without the vinegar & pepper. Great on scrambled eggs w/cheese! I put it in a squirt bottle with cap.

Fabulous! Served with tortilla chips, I had to stop my Dh from eating the whole thing. I only used 1/2 of a jalapeno because I am a wimp. Will make this again and again!

DH has an addiction to the _green sauce_ at a local South American restaurant. Since he refuses to attend the 12-step program, I've dutifully yet unsuccessfully attempted to duplicate the sauce just to keep him eating at home. This time he’ll be believing I went there for lunch and brought home leftovers. ;-) I used 2 big, fat jalapenos - seeds, ribs and all. See me breathing fire? I also used 1/4 cup flat parsley to a 3/4 cup cilantro just to smooth the flavor. After the allotted mellowing and mingling time, I thought it needed just a touch of lime juice. Then it was absolutely the *perfect* sauce! Kate, you are my new best friend for posting this recipe! Thanks so much!
