  • 1-2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup LIGHT olive oil

Creamy cilantro and green onion sauce

  • 3-4 TB homemade mayo (depending on how creamy you want it)
  • 1 1/2 cups cilantro
  • 1/2 cup green onions
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 TB lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/4 tsp ground coriander

  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 6-8 jalapenos, roughly chopped
  • 1/3-1/2 cup olive oil


To make mayo

  1. Food processor: Add everything except olive oil into bowl and pulse to combine. With the processor running, slooooowly stream in the olive oil until everything is emulsified. Feel free to add a couple extra tablespoons of oil if you're not happy with the consistency.
  2. Immersion blender: Put all the ingredients into a large jar (a wide-mouth mason jar works great). Lower your immersion blender into everything and turn it on. Let it go for about 30 seconds, slowly bringing the blender up a little to make sure everything blends while making sure the blade is always immersed.
