This makes EVERYTHING delicious. We eat it on fish (especially salmon), chicken, vegetables, bread...the combination of cool and spicy is great and it's so easy to make

This sauce has such a fresh taste! I used it on salmon on the bbq adding the sauce toward the end of cooking.

Very good recipe. I modified it somewhat to use as a sauce for my fish tacos. After mixing everything, I bring it to taste with a little sugar. For the fish tacos, just take a flour taco shell add some deep fried fish, shredded lettuce, diced onion and this sauce.

I won't rate this, since maybe I did something wrong, given all of the good reviews it's gotten. Maybe I used too much or not enough cilantro. Perhaps the recipe should give a more specific amount, because I followed the recipe exactly as written with no changes whatsoever. Honestly, I don't know why this didn't work, but it was the worst thing I have ever made with cilantro. I was sad that I wasted some of my home grown cilantro on this recipe.
