This sauce comes together in a flash and keeps in the refrigerator for up to four days. It's remarkably versatile and can be used on vegetables, meat, poultry or seafood as well as in salads, as a dip or even a sandwich spread or nacho drizzle. If you're not a fan of cilantro, you can substitute a combination of any other soft herbs such as parsley, basil and mint.



  1. Combine the mayonnaise, cilantro, jalapeno, garlic and lime juice in a blender and blend on high until very smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender jar once or twice with a rubber spatula.
  2. Transfer to a bowl and season with salt. The sauce can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
