Nicaraguans call this tangy tomato sauce marinara, but it sure doesn’t taste like any pasta sauce I’ve ever sampled. It is one of the three traditional accompaniments to Nicaraguan grilled meats. The other two are chimichurri, a parsley-based sauce, and cebollita—Pickled Onions. Serve the salsa marinara with Nicaraguan-Style Steak.
