Salsa de Ajo is a popular and simple Colombian sauce made with a mixture of mayonnaise, fresh garlic, lime juice and cilantro.
In Colombia this garlic sauce is used as a dip for patacones (fried green plantains), plantains chips, French fries and yuca fries, and as a topping for mazorca dresgranada (a corn and cheese dish), hamburgers, hot dogs and sandwiches.
This Salsa de Ajo is very easy to make and very addictive. This time I made this garlic sauce using store bought mayonnaise, but you can use homemade mayonnaise as well, if you prefer.
1 cup of mayonnaise
5 garlic cloves
1/4 cup of fresh cilantro
1/4 teaspoon of salt or to your taste
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
Blend all the ingredients until well blended.
Taste and add more salt if necessary.
