  • 1 cup walnut
  • 2 cups cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp cider vinegar


Put the walnuts in a food processor and grind until fine. Add the cilantro, jalapeño pepper, salt, vinegar and 2 to 3 tbsp of water and blend. Blend in a little more water if necessary to make a thick sauce. Taste and correct the seasoning, adding more salt if necessary.
