OMG I think Ive got the recipe for the Delicious green sauce that comes as a condiment at the California restaurant Pollo Inka. Can be placed on top of any protien or just on rice. Be careful its addictive.

  1. In a blender or food processor mix the lettuce leaves, serrano chilies, mayo, lime, cilantro and salt.
  2. Adjust ingredients to taste or amount your gonna make.
  3. Use breadcrumbs as a thickener. If sauce is too runny then start with a tablespoon and add as needed. Want to be a consistency a little looser than hummus.
