    Peruvian Aja Sauce (green sauce)

    Seeing how a "blast from the past" thread popped up with one take on a Peruvian Aja sauce, here's one that we've used quite successfully ourselves. Plus, it's so easy almost anybody can whip this together.

    ½ cup sour cream or mayo (see notes for vegan option)
    ½ jalapeño (use less for less spicy - and mind those seeds!)
    1 garlic clove
    1 cup chopped cilantro- thin stems ok.
    ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
    a squeeze of lime (about 1 tablespoon)

    Throw it all into a blender until smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary

    We've used this as a sauce on everything from traditional Peruvian-flavored grilled chicken, to topping over salmon -- to even as an appetizer dipping sauce for veggies. It's quite versatile, plus you can make it as spicy or less spicy as your preference allows

    It's Green and looks fit for a Queen.
