    The directions should say to let it sit in refrigerator for a couple hours so the flavors will blend--and the red pepper flakes can infuse flavor to the whole bowl. - 7/14/12

    I lived in Argentina for over a year and this is an amazing sauce. Even just spread on wheat bread. In most major cities you can buy it in a jar instead of making it as well. - 7/14/12

    Wonderful stuff! We loved it! But, uh, five minutes to prepare? Took me much longer, more like 20 minutes at least, what with bumbling around, washing the cilantro and parsley and just getting things assembled. I'll make this again for sure! - 7/17/12

    Just tried this. Marinated a steak in it then put some on top to serve. Very different and a great change of pace. I left off the parsley as I am not a fan. Next time may add just a bit. I will definitely be using this more often - 9/1/12

  • This sounds good with lots of flavor & few carbs (which I am more concerned with). I am not a real hot spicy food type of person, so I'll try it with a little less red pepper at first. My hubby will want the original version, I'm sure! :-) - 7/14/13
