My Take on Mexican Green Sauce

I love green sauce! I love the taste and I love the name. I mean it’s so straight forward, it’s a sauce and it’s green so why not call it green sauce? Simple! There are several green sauces out there with different origin, but the one I’m making is inspired by Mexican flavors. I do not use tomatillo as in a classic Mexican green sauce, but I’ve included some other typical flavors such as jalapeño, coriander and lime. I also added avocado so I guess I came up with a mashup of guacamole and green sauce.

This sauce works with every taco-style dish. It adds freshness and has just that right amount of heat. Everything eaten with guacamole can be served with green sauce as a nice and tasty variation.

In a few days I will post a recipe which also happens to be one of my favorites at the moment and of course it’s topped with green sauce.

Green Sauce – 6 servings


30 g pine nuts
2 avocados
15 g coriander (1 bunch)
15 g parsley (1 bunch)
15 g pickled jalapeños or 1 fresh
1 clove garlic
30 g lime juice
30 g neutral oil
50-75 g water


How to do:

Roast the pine nuts in a dry pan until golden. Transfer them to a food processor. Hollow out the avocado and add it to the mixer together with the herbs, jalapeños, garlic, lime juice and oil. Mix. Add water to you own liking of consistency and season with salt.
