    Dib's's Note:

    Refered to as Cuba's barbecue sauce, it's more of a garlic/cumin vinaigrette flavored with sour orange juice that is splashed on just about everything-it is delish! If you have a sour orange source-lucky you! If not see the note at the end of the recipe instructions for another option. If you hate cilantro use flat leaf parsley.

      We are a garlic loving family. So even though this recipe has plenty, I added a little extra ;0) I used it to marinade chicken, which we grilled. It was really enjoyed by all. I am so glad because I was a little worried it would not. When I got to step 4 it says: :Stir in the sour orange juice, water, oregano, cumin, salt and pepper." There wasn't any mention of water in the ingredients so I didn't know if I should leave it out or add it. Or how much water to use if I did add it. So I took a chance and left it out all together. I was worried that it might end up too strong because of this, but it turned out fine. Served with grilled veggies.
