This is the BEST Mojo Sauce for topping everything.

If there is one sauce recipe that I make over and over again, it’s got to be this Green Mojo Sauce. Not only is it the easiest, fastest sauce you’ll ever make, but it’s also the most addicting blend of tangy, herby, garlicky freshness that you’ll taste.

Honestly, this sauce will take you all of 5 minutes to make.

There’s virtually no measuring needed and no chopping. Just add everything to your blender and go.

What is Mojo Sauce Made Of?

  • Parsley
  • Cilantro
  • Garlic
  • Lime
  • Jalapeno
  • Olive Oil
  • Vinegar

How Do You Make Mojo Sauce?

Just add all the ingredients to your blender and process until smooth. This sauce will take all of 5 minutes to make! It’s so simple.

Is Mojo Sauce Spicy?

I would say that this sauce is about medium on the heat level. If you’d like to tone down the heat, you can remove the seeds and ribs from the jalapeno, or leave the jalapeno out entirely.

How Do You Use Mojo Sauce?

We love this Green Mojo Sauce on everything! On top of these smashed potatoes, on grilled chicken or pork, on top of scrambled eggs or roasted veggies.

We were at the beach this past weekend, and I wanted to try something new to liven up the beautiful, fresh salmon that we found at the local market. This sauce definitely hit the spot.

    I agree, this is delicious sauce. It’s popular in Argentinian cooking and is called Chimichurri, and I haven’t met a single soul who does not love it.
