An Argentinian-infused classic sauce using sacha inchi oil to get your Peruvian powerhouse on. Use this sauce over most proteins and meats, as a salad dressing, or even drizzled over roasted vegetables.

By volume, sacha inchi has more than 48 percent omega-3s—that’s more than 84 percent of the recommended daily value of total essential fatty acids. And those highly concentrated omega-3s fight disease-causing inflammation.


  • 1 bunch cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • ½ cup sacha inchi oil (or olive oil)
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  1. Put all the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth and homogeneous.
