This creamy green sauce is the perfect condiment for anything that needs a subtle kick! It's essentially an emulsified green salsa and I can't get enough!

For the Magical Green Sauce

  • 1/2 pounds fresh jalapeños, stems removed (you can remove seeds if you want less heat)
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3/4 cup grapeseed oil (or canola oil)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1-2 teaspoons red wine vinegar


For the Magical Green Sauce

  • Place the peppers, onion and garlic in a medium saucepan and just enough water to cover. Place over medium high heat and bring to a simmer, reduce heat to maintain a simmer for about 15 minutes or until peppers pierce easily with a knife, soft not mushy. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid and allow to cool 15 min.
  • Put everything into a blender along with the salt, vinegar and begin to blend until smooth, adding in a little reserved cooking water if needed.
  • With the blender on medium low slowly pour in the oil in a steady stream. Continue to blend until the mixture is light and creamy.
  • Remove from the blender, allow to cool and place in an airtight container in the fridge for about a week. (Makes 2 cups)
