We received papalo, a unique and complex herb, in our CSA box this week. Papalo is a common culinary herb used throughout Mexico and South America and it’s distinctive taste can be best described as a cross between cilantro and arugula.
Papalo Verde Sauce Recipe:
Sauté white onion and jalapeño with olive oil until onions are translucent. Place in blender and add leaves of papalo, fresh lime juice and salt. Adjust to taste by adding more salt or leaves of papalo. Pour in a bowl and allow to cool. Also, try adding diced avacados for a fresh summer salsa.
