  • 3/4 cup olive oil mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup cilantro packed and chopped
  • 1 jalapeno chopped
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika


  • Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
    Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving so flavors can blend.



Regular mayonnaise may be used, but I prefer the olive oil blend. Miracle Whip should NOT be used as a substitute.
