My version of this South American staple is ugly (super ugly) and looks nothing like the traditional aji that you get in restaurants, however; it tastes amazing!
Traditionally, all of the ingredients are finely chopped with just the pepper and “dressing” ingredients blended in a blender…I’m a bit of a rebel (lazy) so I only chop the tomatoes and green onion and use the blender for everything else.
If you are gifting this or serving it at a dinner party, I recommend assembling it the traditional way so that it looks prettier…
