I first encountered this sauce at a remote resort in the Copper Canyon. It's simple, but deceptively flavorful. Use it as a rustic salsa or as a sauce spooned over grilled chicken.

This is the salad I’ve settled on serving with the Pollo en Jocon we’ll be having for Thanksgiving—a mixture of creamy and rich and light and crisp (it’s a variation on a traditional Guatemalan recipe from the excellent book, False Tongues and Sunday Bread). I could tell you about how healthy the monounsaturated fats from the avocados are, but you already know that. Instead, just enjoy the dish.

When I think of Mexico, I think of cebollitas (little onions), nestled in embers, turning buttery soft with a haunting smoky flavor. I like to wrap the charred tail around the bulb like wrapping string around a ball, then I scrape it through the flavorful paste and pop it in my mouth whole.

There's something about a creamy, tangy, dare-I-say zippy buttermilk dressing that makes it positively craveable. And despite its richness, buttermilk has fewer calories than whole milk, so pour it on and let go of the guilt.

Feel free to experiment with the ingredients using these general ratios. Try swapping the garlic and white wine vinegar for shallots and champagne vinegar, for instance, or even ginger and rice wine vinegar.
