We’re not making your sad old ‘iceberg lettuce with a few carrot shreds’ salad here. Salad is badass. There … we said it.

Get that image out of your head. That is not salad. That’s lettuce in a bowl and way too wicked boring. This is a flavor-packed stand-alone dish with a heavy dose of nutrients.


Tallarines Verdes is Peru’s version of pesto pasta, which uses culantro in place of basil. The original boasts richness from local farmer’s cheese or parmesan and condensed milk, usually served alongside some type cutlet and (we are guessing) ice cold beer! That said we take a hard left and make this dish with easy-to-find ingredients that still offers full flavor and comfort like mamita used to make.
