Spice up grilled dishes with 3 authentic salsas: chimichurri sauce, guasacaca and mojo de cilantro.
My grandmother used to say that a great sauce could fix anything. She was right. Turkey without gravy isn’t turkey, and grilled meat tastes much better with chimichurri (made from parsley, garlic and oil), guasacaca (a yummy version of guacamole) or mojo de cilantro (an intense green sauce with lots of garlic – perfect for marinades).
Now that spring is here and summer is right around the corner, barbecuing is made even better with the Latin flavor these sauce and marinade recipes provide. All three are easy to make, and none have to be cooked beforehand. They are amazing for enhancing the flavor of any dish you plan to grill, whether it’s meat, chicken, pork or fish.
Note: All recipes make 1 cup of sauce.
Tip: Clean up as you go and avoid the dreaded end-of-night dish duty. A few drops of our plant-based Home Made Simple Lemon-Scented Dish Soap will make short work of washing the food processor. The bright and zesty lemon scent is a perfect complement to the aroma of Latin spices.
Tip: These sauces are simple to make – which means cleaning up is even simpler. After dinner is over, spray Home Made Simple Multi-Purpose Spray on countertops and the stovetop, and wipe away grease, grime and the remnants of your delicioso meal. It’s made with plant-based cleaning ingredients to keep things simple, but it still gets the job done.
