Creamy Cilantro Lime Sauce

This recipe was originally published in Food & Wine (one of my favorites) to go along with a pork shoulder with mojo sauce. I decided to use it on the wonderful flank steak I posted a couple of days ago. 

It's also going to be great on cold shrimp.  Fish tacos.  Or even as a salad or cole slaw dressing. 

Creamy Cilantro Lime Sauce
Makes 1 3/4 cups.

2 large jalapeƱos, seeded and coarsely chopped
2 large garlic cloves, smashed
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
2 tablespoons minced white onion
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/4 cup water
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro

In a blender, puree the jalapeƱos, garlic, ginger, onion, lime juice and water until smooth. Add the mayonnaise and cilantro and pulse a few times. Season the sauce with salt and serve.

(You can refrigerate for up to 3 days.)
