Mojo Verde

  • yield: Makes about 1/2 cup

Ingredients

  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 cups well-packed chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/2 cup Spanish extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons sherry-wine vinegar

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Using a mortar and pestle, mash the garlic and salt to a smooth paste. Add cilantro leaves and cumin seeds; mash until well combined. Slowly drizzle in olive oil while continuing to mash, until all the olive oil is absorbed.
