Brazilian Vinaigrette Sauce (Molho De Vinagrete)
from SusieQusie

Traditionally served over beans this sauce can be as hot as you like it. As a guide - cayenne peppers are roughly 10 times hotter than your run-of-the-mill jalapeno.

3 cups

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Italian parsley, finely chopped
  • 4 large fresh tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 large yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 fresh cayenne peppers, finely chopped (more or less to taste)

Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl.

Stir well and serve either at room temperature or cold.

Flavors intensify upon standing.
