"There are many variations of pebres, mildly hot or very hot, according to taste. This one is adapted from "The South American Table," by Maria Baez Kijac. You can add one finely chopped tomato to the salsa, if you like. Serve in a small bowl with grilled meat, chicken or seafood."
Serving Size: 1 (35 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"Love this Recipe!!!can you say Yummy Yum Yum;) i used lime juice instead of vinegar and made a Salad dressing for my Greens...Delishhhhhh..."
"This is an awesome salsa! Used red wine vinegar and diced jalapeno from a jar. Served tonight on the side with Recipe #171002. Great with tortilla chips, too! The more it chills the better."
"ZWT4: A nice change of pace from the normal tomato based salsas!! Hubby LOVED the cilantro in this!!"
"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 recipe #116856 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."
"Terrific!!! i have been nibbling on it for 2 hours and cant stop."
"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 heâ€™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!"
"very authentic and yummy!"
"If you have never tried this--you are missing out on one of life's greatest pleasures. Make sure you get as much stem off the cilantro as possible. It is FABULOUS with crusty bread, tortilla chips or as a nice topping for grilled fish, chicken or pork."
