Guasacaca is a traditional Venezuelan condiment with a pretty awesome name. Say it out loud. It makes you smile, doesn’t it? Yeah, it’s that good! It’s usually served as a dipping sauce or accompanies arepas. Instead of chips and salsa, Venezuelan meals often start with fried plantains, a red sauce, and guasacaca.
I wasn’t in the mood to deal with the blender today, so I took all the traditional ingredients for this sauce and made a guacamole-style dip. You will want to mince the ingredients as finely as possibly for this recipe and only use fresh herbs.
- 3 tablespoons minced cilantro
- 3 tablespoons minced parsley
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 green onion sliced extra thin
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1 avocado, cubed
- salt and pepper to taste
Mash everything together until combined well.
Taste for seasoning and adjust accordingly.
Refrigerate at least two hours before serving.
