Things I like about Trader Joe’s Green Dragon Hot Sauce
First, of course, is that it’s tasty—very tasty. It’s not particularly hot, so you can focus on the taste instead of the pain.
And the ingredients warrant the Leisureguy Seal of Approval™: cane sugar, not high-fructose corn syrup; and olive oil and/or canola oil, not soybean oil (avoid) or (worse) cottonseed oil. (One reason I make my own mayonnaise is that soybean oil is so often what is used in commercial mayonnaise, though you can find canola-oil mayonnaise if you look. Olive oil mayonnaise? Not to be found but extremely easy to make if you have an immersion blender and the beaker that comes with it. Key: Eggs must be at room temperature.) The other ingredients in the sauce are what you’d expect: jalapeños, tomatillos, cilantro, garlic, etc.
Well worth a try, IMO, and not expensive. I think maybe I’ll also now try their Sriracha.
