This is between a sauce and salad dressing, so I have been using for both! Works great on top of rice and beans (obviously not raw), or on dehydrator-sauteed vegetables, especially if they are seasoned in a latin fashion (oregano, cumin etc.). Or use this in wrap sandwiches to add some flavor, salt and gooey-ness.
If you want to be fancy, this would be beautiful piped out of a ketchup bottle or pastry bag.
Yield approx 1 pint of sauce

Refrigerate and use on veggies, salad or tacos.
