"Mojo Verde" Avocado sauce

I learnt this recipe when I was living in Canary Islands, in a small beautiful island called La Gomera. 
It's called Mojo Verde, which means green dip, they have lots of different kinds of Mojos, but this one is my favorite. It goes well with meat or fish and delicious on top of boiled potatoes and sweetcorn, or simply as a dip.
1 Ripped avocado
1 Bunch of Fresh Coriander
1 Clove of Garlic
1 Small Mild Green Chili
2 Tablespoons of Vinegar
4 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt to Taste

Mixed all the ingredients in a food processor.
Done!

Versión española: Aprendí esta receta cuando viví en las Islas Canarias, en una islita preciosa llamada La Gomera. En Canarias tienen un montón de mojos distintos, todos buenísimos, aunque este es mi favorito. Se puede comer con carne o pescado, y está buenísimo con patatas cocidas y mazorcas o "piñas de millo" o simplemente para mojar.
1 Aguacate maduro
1 Manojo de Cilantro fresco
1 Diente de ajo
1 Guindilla verde no muy picante
2 Cucharadas de Vinagre
4 Cucharadas de Aceite de Oliva Virgen Extra
Sal al gusto
Triturar todo con la batidora.
Ya está!

  1. Sounds complicated :P

    Next time we buy aguacates I will try to make it. I think I'd like it with potatoes.
