  • About

Criolla sauce is a classic accompaniment to Argentinian asado or barbecue. Carmen from Moo Cantina described it as a salad and sauce in one, similar to the widely known chimichurri, but even fresher.


  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped


There isn’t much to making this apart from the actual prep. Simply place everything together in a mixing bowl and toss together. Enjoy with your grilled or barbecued meats or with Moo Cantina’s beef empanadas.
