Summer is coming to a close as Labor Day approaches and the kids are off to school shortly after. I know in the southwest the kids are already back to school, but, here in the Pacific Northwest, the kids start school after Labor day. For my husband and I Labor Day means firing up the grill and making burgers. To me there is nothing better than a grilled, homemade hamburger. Especially when you are topping it with cheese, a thick slice of raw onion, crispy lettuce and garden fresh tomato. This just happens to be my hubster's idea of the ultimate burger but I took it a step further and made some jalapeño sauce. YUMMY!!
1 large jalapeño, chopped
1 medium garlic clove
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons lime juice or pickle juice
1/2 cup cilantro leaves
Kosher salt and black pepper
To make this delicious sauce put jalapeño, garlic, mayonnaise, lime/pickle juice, and adding the cilantro last....in a blender.
Optional-put ingredients in a deep bowl or measuring cup and use an immersion blender. Blend on high speed until completely smooth.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Hoping you have a safe and fun Holiday week!
