What is this sauce/condiment?? And how do I make it?

Lizard | Jan 24, 2006 09:42 AM

I loooove the roasted peruvian chicken I can get in my neighborhood in Boston. My question....what is the amazing cool and spicy hot creamy green condiment sauce they give you in tiny solo cups to accompany your meal? The very nice woman behind the counter just calls it salsa verde and could not give me an ingredient list. But it does not strike me as the "salsa verde" I'm accustomed to. That is to say, I do not believe there are onions, or tomatoes or tomatillos in it. Can anyone be of assistance? Could it be aji? I don't detect any cilantro.

I tried this on the Boston board, but I thought I may have more luck here.
