Mango Mayo

I recently went on vacation to Margarita Island in Venezuela and one of the ladies that sells empanadas on the beach gave me the recipe for a “guasacaca de mango". It wasn’t really a guasacaca as I know it, because it was more of a sauce that she had in a squeeze container. (Guasacaca is kind of a mix between guacamole and pico de gallo, but not spicy made in Vzla and normally added to grilled meats.) This was more like a flavored mayonnaise. We all put it on the empanadas and it was great! Anyway, I’ve made it a couple of times and it comes out fantastic. Here it is:

1 green mango, finely chopped
2 Tbsp finely chopped onion
2 cloves of garlic, freshly minced
1 tsp coarse salt
½ tsp freshly ground pepper
1 handful of chopped cilantro
2 Tbsp oil (approximate)
2 Tbsp mayonnaise (approximate)
Dash of Hot sauce

Put the mango in a blender with the oil and all other ingredients except the mayo. Blend as smooth as possible, then add mayo until you have a nice creamy sauce. Don’t add too much mayo, add a little more oil if needed. Add a couple of drops of hot sauce and more salt to taste.

This works really well on grilled pork loin, on an empanda of course, as a substitute for mayo on a sandwich, in an arepa, well, pretty much anything.
