When I had just 1 Jalapeño and didn’t know what to use it for, I chopped it up and added to my Miso Sauce. I decided to use the Miso Sauce for cucumber salad, so I added Vinegar and some Peanuts. A little bit of Garlic as well. Then I added Pickled Jalapeño. The Miso Sauce turned to a delicious dip. We ate a lot of Cucumber sticks with it. What an accidental invention!
